Description

Second bolted route from the left side of the slab. A bit sportier than Chronic Bedwetter, as it ascends basically the same terrain but with one less bolt. The bolts on this climb are also a bit older than those on the other slab routes, but still seem solid enough. All three bolts are located in the first 30 feet (crux), with the remainder of the climb to the top runout but much easier (5.2).

Trees work best for an anchor if you have very long slings, otherwise bring a small assortment of stoppers and a #1 Camalot.

Protection

3 bolts plus long sling for an anchor.

I believe Robertson Wall is the third bolt line from the left, while the two cold shuts belong to the Ladder Route. This line, if I am not mistaken, follows the more modern (but certainly not new) bolt hangers to the right of the cold shuts. Thin climbing through the headwall and the crux requires finding the right holds, as most of the features are well-polished. May 3, 2010
