Multiple Stab Wounds

Description

This is a good route. From the Big Roof, walk back left and this route is the bolted line right after (to the left of) Needles and Pins. It's a good route, but there is an eye-opener move that is the crux at the second bolt. Don't blow it or you could meet your belayer at 9.8 m/s^2. Despite that, this is probably the best route in between 'Quick Draw Moves to Hollywood' and 'Needles and Pins'.

Protection

Bolts. Please use your own gear for top rope. Please bring an extra biner and if the ones up top look bad or don't easily clip or shut, please replace it. It's good karma.

[Hide Comment] Really a fun route...

Just make sure you keep your head about you until you're clipped into that 2nd bolt...

This would be a great route if it got more traffic...
