This is the bolted face climb to the right of Mind Bender. It is rightmost of the three bolted routes that end at one of two bolted belays (with chains) about 40 feet up.


3 bolts, bolt(s) anchor(s)

Fun, easy slab climbing but real short. A good warm up for the two routes to the left or to set up a top-rope.

I think there are only two bolts. It's really run out after the last bolt, but easy. A fall short of the anchor would be really, really bad.

I agree there are only two bolts on the route proper, and that last runout is real hairy. But you can continue up and slightly right from the second bolt to clip the second bolt of the Puppy Chow route to the right. This makes the climb more comfortable, but use a long sling on the "third" bolt because Pudnurtle slants away to the left.

There are only two bolts and it is another Big Rock climb that you DO NOT want to fall on!
