BETA PHOTO: Yellow Latex Blues, Ophir Wall. The first two bol...

Description 

Climb up the face on the right side of the wide arete. Follow bolts up to the big ledge and belay from a 2 bolt anchor. The starting moves are very bouldery and feel harder than 10- if you miss the sequence. It is a great climb!

Location 

This is the right of 2 bolted routes at the base of the Jungle Gym area. This route is about 20' to the right of Block Party.

Protection 

5 bolts to the anchors.

I felt this to be stiff at 10-. Although, I suppose the grade is fair for Ophir.

Ditto to Andrew's comment. The lower crux is tricky. Good climbing with a variety of moves compared to block party (to the left). Much easier once you've climbed it a few times and know where all the holds are.
