Hooking up the third bolt. Not yet at the crux, bu...

Description 

The first 25 feet of this route is where all the business happens. Technical start with tricky/awkward sequences until you reach the bulge 20' off the deck. Pull through the bulge and mantle to a rest. Avoid moving left at the bulge for full value. A bit runout up top but the climbing backs off considerably. Not the most intriguing route but could be better with more traffic.


Location 

start approximately 7' right of Big Rocks. The center bolt line around the corner from sleeping bat.


Protection 

bolts, top anchors are probably getting pretty old by now

Traverse left or right at the top to use the anchors on the adjacent routes. Some fun moves!

There are anchors above this route but they are old, rusty open shuts that are far apart. You can use them as a directional along with the achors off to the left but I would not trust them alone.
