Description

A Hike for Y2K is on the far right side of Blob Slab. It starts off a ledge with a 2-bolt belay anchor (accessed by a short 3rd-class scramble).

This route looks like a complete slab; however, two bulges provide crux moves that are decidedly unslabby. The crux is in the first bulge - thin moves up the bulge on slopers and microcrimps (11+) lead to a decent edge. The main difficulty is you can't see any of the needed holds from under the bulge.

After this, there is a similar sequence at another bulge, although it is much easier (10+) here.

Worthwhile if you've done the gully routes already.

Addendum: there is a 2 bolt anchor ~25' off the ground.

Protection

7 bolts.
