A.K.A. A Pox in Vulgaria - A fantastic route for the grade, just not very long. Well protected, good rock, and some good overhanging moves that require pulling on jugs with minimal feet. Provides a nice pump for the portly. Some of the stances were a little reachy, but were very logically placed. The Smith & Tusting guide specifies that there are 8 bolts, so I may have skipped one, but it still wasn't run out. A great view rewards those reaching the top. Vulgaria can easily be top-roped from an approach trail on the east side of the cliff.


Third route from the east end of the cliff (first bolted route). Climbs the left side of an arete. Walk off to the east or rappel from the anchors.


7 camouflauged bolts to a two bolt anchor (with a rappel ring and a quicklink).
