Description

Climb up and right from the flake traverse. You will see asmall hole about 2 feet up from the right side of the flake,and then a large jug looking thing 12 or so feet off theground. Hitting the jug is the crux, but you're still notdone yet! Hold on and find some feet as you use less thanideal holds to pull yourself over the edge.

Be careful if you decide to fall, as the landing area issoft, but sometimes a little small for this climb. Logs,trees, and the first couple of feet of the rock itself areall potential hazards.

Protection

Crashpad and some good balance will suffice.

I went back here a few weeks ago for the first time in several years, and it seems to me like someone has DRASTICALLY improved the landing under this problem. what used to be a fall into some nasty rocks and stumps is now nicely landscaped and bark nuggeted just like the rest of the lower area at Indian Rock.

It helped me a lot to just skip the bubble hold and go straight for the in-cut flake. Really isn't insanely highball compared to say...bishop. Oct 25, 2009
This one also shouldn't have an R. I've fallen off it many times, even with no pad, and never gotten hurt. Mar 13, 2007
the bubble is a great route. haven't felt so good since I was on the sharp end more than two months ago. Sep 5, 2004
