Frank Bentwood on Panama Canal.

Description 

Climb up a short flake/crack (gear; small to med cams), then up past three bolts to a bolted anchor. Worthwhile climbing. Fun and interesting climbing.


Location 

Located right of Dry Lake and left of Noriega Does Panama


Protection 

Gear at the start (small to med cams), and then three bolts to a bolted anchor (all 3/8").

Worth a quick lap if you're already over on this side of the formation. The black-colored hangers are a bit of an eyesore. Crux is probably the move getting off the ground.

Cool kind of liebacking moves up positive features leads to a somewhat delicate step left to finish up typical Josh grain. Fun

A little awkward getting established to clip the first bolt then good movement up the lieback section with a standard grain finish. It's nice to see new routes like this turn up in such heavily visited/developed areas.

1/2" cam can protect the bouldery flake start. Once established the bolt that looks way up there is easily clipped. Nice movement, top is a little forced….are we suppose to smear that last move out or move slightly left using the plates on the neighboring wall. You can guess what I did.

Bolts have been repainted (thanks Bob, those were an eyesore).

I don't usually recommend avoiding routes but this one is pretty much complete choss from bottom to top. Maybe it'll clean up into something worthwhile but eh...I'd skip it.
