Description

This route shares a start, and also the first bolt with the route Power Bacon. Find the South side of the Southern Goose Egg, on which there are 2.5 bolted lines, one independent line low (Sea and the Mirror) and one line up top that splits left and right, the latter of these being Fruity Pebbles and Power Bacon. This is just below the Ramp up the middle of the south face. After clipping the first bolt, take the right-hand variation past three more bolts to the upper slab, which is climbed up and left to reach chain anchors.

This route can not be easily lowered off of. Your second should follow, then both climbers should rap off. Anything else might thrash the sheath of your rope.

This climb is thinner and more balancy than Power Bacon, but less sustained or pumpy.

Protection

This can be done on the 4 bolts and bolted anchor or if the first 20' of easy climbing to the first bolt is disturbing, there are solid placements for 3-3.5" cams.

This felt like 5.10 first thing in the AM. You really have to work your feet with some thin hand holds. I would do Power Bacon first, next time. It's pumpier but has pretty big holds at the business.
Following this pitch to clean it is probably best. Nov 16, 2008
