BETA PHOTO: Puddle Of Holes


Start at a short, bulging, black wall about 400 feet west of the east-side descent gully about 60 feet left of Box Lunch. Climb onto ledge, clip the first bolt, and pass two more bolts to the anchor. Exercise care clipping the second bolt as a fall while clipping it would result in hitting the ledge. This is a fun route, good holds for making clips.


3 bolts + anchor.

Agree with Michael's comments on clipping second bolt. Advise being very solid at this grade before attempting this route or Shelf Road Virgin. My partner and I both passed on these routes today, because they are too near the top of our ability level at this time. If you blow it before the second clip, that ledge is going to ruin your day.

My partner and I are 5.10a leaders on our best days and we lead this route, though we were able to toprope this route first. Not very hard once you've tried it before. My second 10a lead ever.
