DescriptionThis route ascends the overhanging western face of Cave Rock. It begins up a crack in a dihedral, then traverses left on the most overhanging portion of the route by using some big holds, then it meets with Sucka Fish (.12a) at the second bolt and heads up over the ledge. From there, the climbing is easy slab for another 20 feet until you reach the top anchors.
ProtectionThree bolts to a two bolt anchor, the first bolt is a ways up, but the crack in the dihedral makes for easy climbing.After the second bolt, its almost just as worth-while to walk off to the right as it is to continue up the easy slab to the top.To traditionally protect, a medium sized cam will do for the crack, then girth-hitch the knob... it's a pretty sketchy idea though.
