Eric clipping the fourth bolt on pirate booty

Description 

Make a slightly strenuous move or two off of crimps to a nice jug. Make a fun move over to the right to some nice jugs, then head straight up on crimpers, trying not to pump out. The crux for me was just hanging on till the end.

Location 

This route is the left-most of the two routes on the rock's east face. Clip the first bolt from the mini landing (it's probably best if the belayer is on the main landing).

Protection 

4 bolts to chains.

I named it Pirate Booty because some punks stole 4 of my draws that were hanging on Blood Ruby...

One good deadpointish move to a great hold is easier than it looks after the 2nd bolt. The finish is a bit tricky. There is a great jug up and right of the chains but getting there is insane. We used some hard to see holds around the left side. Overall a fine fun route and good as a warmup for Blood Ruby (plus you can hang the draws on "B.R." very easily from the chains)

Another quality line, I really enjoyed this one, but I must have missed something or was just flat as I thought this was a couple of grades harder. Fun, pumpy moves the entire way.

I'm with Darren. I thought this was a bit tougher. Plus the best hold on the cruxy start broke off while we were on it, so I think it got a bit harder.

There were some big jugs along the way, but in between the climbing was tough and my arms were pumped. It could've been because I had just climbed bloody ruby, but it felt tough. Also we built a new landing for this route after climbing there today.
