Matt Lloyd on the crux. Photo J. Lieneger.
Climb the right-most line on the wall. This is only 4 bolts long, but it is very sustained and bouldery. There are multiple ways through the business. This climbs good rock, and it helps to be tall. It has long moves on good sidepulls and slopers. This was bolted by Josh Lieninger and Matt Lloyd.
This is the only climbing right off the road.
Just some draws and some nutz.

The route follows the bolts. the missing bolt was moved because it was impossible to clip... The climb trends directly into the 12. When you get on it will make sense.

Yo Matt, thanks for the bolts!
So how was the rock when you drilled #3, the bolt you pulled out? Could it be put back in? Or does another need to be drilled? Also how deep did you drill and what kind of bolt/length did you use? Thanks!!!

Hey Jonathan, Matt and I bolted this line together. We used 2-3/4" x 3/8" sleeve bolts, I have heard them referred to as five piece Rawl, but no one in the hardware industry knows them by that name. We drilled about 3" into the rock and even with and electric drill (not the best one) it still took about 20 min a hole. I think Matt just pulled the hanger off of the 3rd bolt and hammered it in, because removing would be damn near impossible.
