|Great Red Book Rock
Named for our president, who often ignores this rule of grammar: "Families is where our nation finds hope, where wings take dream." (George W. Bush, 2000)
This route is not the right-most on the cliff, but it is the farthest right route that contains a significant number of bolts. This is one of the few routes on this crag that is not runout.
This route is about 100 yards right (south) of the Great Red Book. Hike around on a ledge below the face, soon a gully forms between the ledge and the face. Climb down into it, and look for the last set of bolts, the first one just above a black, varnished section.
7 or 8 bolts.

One of two routes on the entire wall that is NOT runout on this wall and is extremely well protected. A single 60 meter rope will let you rappel back down! Fun moves over somewhat fragile rock.

I get tired of the fools who insert political slant into route descriptions.
We don't care. Put that into your comments!

Lighten up there, Francis. You might consider thanking George (Bell, not Bush) instead for all the quality descriptions he has added to the site.

So you'd prefer nothing more than "8 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor"? Sometimes the name of the route has some interesting history to it, and yes, sometimes it is political. Feel free to put up your own route on this wall and name it whatever you want.
