This route is the farthest right in the gully which separates the two separate rock formations at the bowling alley. There are three routes here that are really close together. One of them should of been left as a toprope. Climb up on good golds to a seam, lieback and an interesting crux. The bolts stay on your left for most of the climb. They seem to be a little far to the left for the bottom, but that might be due to loose rock.


5 bolts and 2 bolt anchor.


Is this the route at the rightmost area as you begin your hike up the Bowling Alley (w/ a tree within feet of your back)? If not, what is the name of that route? Oct 7, 2002

I think the route with the tree you are referring to is called mosquito burrito, and is listed in the Bowling Alley climbs. There is no tree by this route. Oct 7, 2002
Elijah, the route I am talking about is about 4 climbs to the right of Mosquito Burrito. I'm not sure if it is listed on this site. Anyone? Oct 7, 2002
Although this route isn't great to look at, it's interesting and surprisingly good. Personally I feel that the crux comes low moving past the 2nd bolt, although the upper move is also challenging. Jan 25, 2005

A pretty fun route, but certainly too close to neighbors. As was said, stay right of the bolts (keep the bolts to your left) because if you climb this belly to the bolts, you'll have to decide which line of botls to clip. There are 4 routes within 3 meters. This one, Shiny Dog, ???, and Meteor Roadblock.Maybe as another poster suggested it's been a little overdone. The line is reasonably fun though, and a good warm-up for the 5.11 climber. May 27, 2005

I thought the crux on this was down low. I made it through the upper part which is supposed to be the crux. The bottom took a lot of strength. Maybe I am just not strong enough for it. Mar 13, 2014
