The right side of the bulge routes. Starts on a lower landing than the other routes and heads up a easy slab. The first bolt is pretty much obsolete now. Originally the route headed up the right side of this lower slab, but the moves really sucked. So we cleared some brush away and now you can do just a few easy 5.5/6 moves past big holds and jugs to get past the left side. The steep bulge is the buisness but it is over pretty quick and the route slabs out again. This steep part is pretty darn good though and if it were longer, we would consider giving it more stars.


6 bolts and chains

Weird name for a weird route. Well, it's not quite as weird as it was (as Crisco said, we cleared the landing so you don't have to grovel up the wide crack/corner), but the climbing after the steep part is still just... weird. It kinds turns you around... The bulge is a lot of fun, though!
