Description

Climb up the holed cave section just around the corner from the southeast face.

Climbing is interesting for the first 25 feet, using the giant holes as leverage and then exiting out to a slopey move that is the crux just after the third bolt. Continue up the arete to the top anchors, and lower or walk off.

Protection

6 bolts to the shared 2 bolt top anchor on the top of The Underworld. Bring a couple of slings for the first two bolts, as rope drag can be quite bad on your rope without them.

The slight runout to the 4th bolt can be protected with some small cams or nuts.

I think in different guidebooks this route has 3 different variations depending on where you start. Basically, 10c is when you avoid the direct start by going right (inside the cave). If you go directly (starting under the bulge), that's 11a (also called Poop Shoot direct). If you go left of the bulge, that's 10d. Jul 23, 2017

The block in the crack beneath the first bolt is moving. If you pull hard on it it will probably come out. I recommend starting a bit to the left in order to avoid a potentially painful breakage. Aug 30, 2004
