Description

To find this route, please see the direction for "[105752980]". EIE is two routes to the right. It begins by stepping off of a large belay slab and across a little gap to the first holds.

When I climb a route like this, it makes me so sad. If this route was 195 feet of the material the first 3 bolts are made of it, it would be stellar.

But in the real world, it [isn't] always that way. Enjoy the fun beginning (you have to look around a bit for the holds) and cruise up the last section.

Protection

4 bolts. Last time I did it (few months ago), you could lower off the last bolt. Or you can top out, hike west 200 yards and scramble down.

Per Kenan: Note that this route has a standard 2-bolt anchor now.

Note that this route has a standard 2-bolt anchor now (versus the single bolt that Fred Knapp mentions in 'Shelf Road Rock').

Also note that the start to this climb is somewhat awkward and insecure - from the top of an angled boulder. Seems to me like this route could have been started from the ground on the more Easterly aspect of the rock instead of atop the awkward boulder, but hey, that's just me. Sep 26, 2011
Climb Elvis is Everywhere. A fun one-move wonder. The move is why you climb. Fluid movement over stone. Clip the last bolt and traverse left to the anchors of In the Region of the Butterfly Pump. Lower from these anchors as you would normally do on a sport route. Be safe and have fun. Dec 6, 2001
