Description [Suggest Change]

Clip three bolts which follow nice patina edges then follow a small crack to two more bolts above which take you back to nice patina holds. A bit reachy here and there.

Location [Suggest Change]

This is technically on the Bumblie Rock east face, but sits inside the Transformer Corridor 20 feet to the right of Mystery Bolter.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Quickdraws, small stoppers and tcu's

Excellent route! Sustained and fun the whole way. Kinda bouldery and very continuous through the first three bolts. Eased up a bit for the crack (well protected with stoppers) with a pretty big move (but not the crux) at the top. Sep 2, 2007

Super route, best route in the transformer corridor. Way more fun and challenging than vibrator. Jul 6, 2011
I'm 6'2" 195lbs, and tackled the bottom with enough thrashing to churn butter, desperately cranking on the thin flakes at the bottom. Everything held solid, so I'd say don't worry about them.

It goes about 10a/b after the first three bolts. The finger crack was quite fun. Sep 27, 2012
