Located just right of bolted route The Ladder, this older climb, which bears the same name, stears clear of most of the difficulties associated with the harder climb. Jug after jug leads you up a slightly overhanging face to the ledge where the old top rope bolts were cut. From here head up the right side of the block (whereas the bolted climb stays left. The crack and dihedral are on.
7 bolts. Shares the top anchors with The Ladder. Set up a top rope by walking around the left side of The Bubble and placing a long sling on the 2 bolts atop the climb. Trad leading this climb would probably require much more than a standard rack. Very large cams could protect the huge brocken huecos down low, then as the pockets become more reasonably sized, normal cams would do the trick. Finally, some small nuts would work for the top crack. Know what you're doing before venturing to lead this traditionally top roped problem.
