Much hilarity to be had on Your Lead, circa 1977

Description 

Leave the Trauma up and left up past two bolts. This climb is basically kick back climbing with a hard 5.9 boulder problem thrown in the mix. The trick is traversing left past a blank section after the first bolt is clipped. This climb gets much easier once you learn the moves.

One star since the short and hard crux is out of bed with the easy clmbing on the rest of the route and the gear anchor and rappel is kind of a hassle. This does open up another route in a very popular area however.

Location 

On the extreme left side of the Lunch Rock area. Start up as for the Trauma and head up and left on bolts at a big block.

Protection 

2 bolts. New Stainless as of 8/2007. Can run it to the first bolt or protect with a Yellow? alien. Gear anchor, small to 1" or can be set higher up with larger gear. Walk left 100' or so (exposed) and rappel down Empathy.
