Occupied Campsite Rule In Effect! Details
Any route or boulder problem that starts out of or near an occupied campsite may not be done without first obtaining the campsite occupant's permission.
DescriptionMake some easy moves onto the rock, mantle a large grey intrusion and clip the first of two bolts. Moving past the first bolt is the crux and involves getting up to and reaching another intrusion near the second bolt. Clip the bolt (a spinner) and then work your way up into ledgefall range as you make the gritty exit moves.
The hard moves on this are well protected but a fall from near the top could be disastrous. Should you fall the bolt might hold, but even if it does you'll probably hit the intrusion and break your ankles. Probably better to toprope this, or better yet just avoid it altogether.
