Description 

This route starts left of Carrots for Everyone to the right of a large block that is about 25' off the ground (the top of this block is the 'Room for a View' ledge). The section up to the ledge is a bit blocky and dirty but pretty easy terrain. Above the ledge it takes the line of bolts on a slightly overhanging face for an additional 60 feet to a pair of bolted anchors. This section is consistent, pumpy and some of the best 5.10 climbing at Ozone, IMO.

Location 

See Above

Protection 

8 QD's. There are no bolts until above the ledge so you may want to bring a 1-2" piece or two for the start.

One can connect the first half of Dirty Jugs with Sweeping Beauty, making a fully bolted route. Like many of the climbs at Ozone, a 50m rope will not get you to the ground.

This climb is 10.b if not 10.a. I am not sure who is upgrading them.

The only committing move getting up to the ledge cannot be protected with anything nearby. Even if you did, it would have to be with a long runner, or the rope drag would be terrible. I would second the idea of doing the first half of Dirty Jugs as the primary approach for this route.

I have added a bolt on the first pitch or lower half of this climb. No more ground fall potential.

Does not look that great but is one of the better climbs I did today! Just made it down on a 60, pretty awesome!
