NEAR THE TOP OF THE CLIMB

Description 

This is the first climb on the left of the DARK SIDE wall. It takes a rising traverse to the right linking onto the last two bolts of The Naked Truth. See Photo.This is another new line offered to a visiting climber from New Hampshire.

P1) Two cam placements lead to eleven bolts and more cam placements to double anchors about 15' to the right of the finish. Excellent climbing

Location 

Little Spotted Wolf Canyon. On the Dark Side wall. Walk through the canyon's mouth to the first slab/wall on the left. The route is about 100' left of The Naked Truth.

Protection 

Some Cams from 1/2' to #3.5 friend. Many slings to avoid rope drag, quick draws. 60m rope (two ropes needed for rap off)Some of the bolts are in awkward places due to the difficulty of climbing this route on sight carrying a drill etc
