100 yards uphill from Drive By Shooting is an ominous looking roof that goes comfortably at 5.10. Two or three bolts up the slab lead to an awkward clip near the edge of the roof. Pull the roof on jugs - the moves are a kick.


A half a dozen QDs and something for the double bolt anchor at the top.

4 bolts; optional #1-#1.5 Friend between 2 & 3; unwelded cold shut anchor. May 5, 2008
FA Dave Field and Ernie Moskovics. This was our first motorized drill installed route. Dave had the scam on a Bosch from the geotech outfit he worked for and kept it for weeks at a time. With a free drill, we felt it was our obligation to start putting in routes. The name comes from the fact that there was a inset chunk of rock in a crack at the start (which looked like a loaf of bread). I pinched it (and it promptly reefed), but it stayed put for a second, and the route had a name. Apr 11, 2013
Same issue as Mud Shark, appears to be mixed metals on this one too. Feb 10, 2016
