Another steep start on this route that climbs through four bolts before the angle eases off for a bolt. While this might at first appear to be a repeat of the route to the right, the climbing gets interesting at the 6th bolt and remains fun until the chains. Good pockets, jugs and horizontal ledges abound on this route. The top 4 bolts are vertical, and the climbing is just plain fun. Good cruiser route for those comfortable in the easy .10 range.
This is a new route and still has some loose stuff on it, so be careful. I wouldn't be out of the realm of possibilities to drop some good sized rocks on your belayer. Route should clean up with traffic.
Second route to the left of Stump. Approach as to Hard Rock Wall, when you get to the top of the slope, head left to new Hard Rock West area. Continue west past the terraced area to newer climbs and this will be the second route on the new wall.
10 bolts + the chains. Shares chains with a .10c to the left.
