Going over the bulge on puppet strings


This climb is near the east end of the Gap on the south facing side. It is the left of three routes on the hunk of rock where Shotgun Baptism (10c) and 12 Gauge Conversion (9/TR) are located. Cimbing is easy up to the third bolt where a bulge is encountered. Pull through the bulge clip one more bolt on your way to the anchors.


4 bolts, bolted anchor

Very good route that is well protected. To keep things interesting, start directly below first bolt at overhang. At upper bulge, clip last bolt then pull over on very good handholds. Felt safe and fun.
