Description

Look for a black streak with a cactus about half way up the route. This route is composed of two different boulder problems with a lie down and go to sleep rest in between (you can rest as long as you please). The first 3 bolts down low take you through a sequency initial crux, then walk past the cactus, and continue over the overhanging rock through the second crux (hidden hold). Watch your ass on the cactus (i.e. DON'T FALL HERE!) and clip two final bolts to the chains of glory.

Protection

5 bolts to anchors.

Fun climbing, though the route would be better if it were more sustained. For some odd reason the person who bolted this route seemed to think that running out the bolt after the easy part (and making the clip a little bit awkward at that!) could somehow compensate for the unsustained nature of the climbing.

Fun climbing. I was happy with the bolting - long rest keeps it at 2 stars, but it is welcome after the powerful start. Aug 7, 2017
