George romps upward.

Description 

This is a line that seems like a variation of the 1st pitch of Unknown 9+. It has an obvious lone bolt on the right side of the West Slabs. Seen from the ground, it sort of lures you upwards to see what is there. It could easily continue upward with natural protection, but we did not do that.

From the ledge 40' up, climb right of the 2 bolt anchor on blocky, gritty terrain. Move past a bolt. Place a #1 and/or #2 Camalot, and finish at the 2 bolt anchor with quicklinks.


Location 

This is a line with an obvious lone bolt on the right side of the West Slabs.


Protection 

1 bolt, #1 & #2 Camalots, +/- other cams.
