approaching bolt #2

Description 

An unusually long route in the Schoolroom. The crux is at the beginning, and the first two bolts don't have easy clipping stances. It stays fun throughout the whole length.


Location 

It's the first route left of the big crack (Humpty Dumpty) going all the way up the wall.


Protection 

10 bolts to anchor

If the cruxy start on this gives you some trouble, you can merge in to this route from either right or left. Either of these options goes at around 5.9, maybe a bit harder. Then you can toprope the start of this climb. I like starting on Chocolate Doobie and then stepping over the gap, it's a fun alternative.

Yep crux is within the first 3 bolts. I liked the climb. I didn't go bonkers over it but three stars for the length and quality compared to other close climbs.

The length is what makes this climb pretty cool. The first two or three bolts are the crux - mostly cuz they're so damn slick - but keep in mind that this is only like bouldering a very slick V0. Ignore the temptation to cheat by going left; instead, go straight up. Plenty of rests (if you even need them) after bolt 3. Juggy with plenty of holds.
