Description 

AKA: Chub Country; Fun climbing up a route similar to it's neighbors, watch for hornets. Sick of drilling in limestone the FA just ran it out to the top. "Perhaps another bolt would help appease the Den Mothers out there and help the route "fit in" better" Shares anchors with Itchie Stitches

Location 

Farthest left route on east side of wall.

Protection 

This climb only has two bolts both are at the bottom 15', no chains at top. Build an anchor.

This route is called "Sticky Fishes" aka Chub Country- far from my finest climbing moment (3/2003). Sick of drilling limestone I just ran it out to the top. Perhaps another bolt would help appease the Den Mothers out there and help the route fit in better. Shares the Itchy anchors.

This one is definitely runout to the top (you might deck if you fall from high up) but the climbing after the second bolt is significantly easier than the climbing up to it. Fun climbing down low.
