Description

"Where's Bob?" climbs the face and roof about 20' right of Boulder Slips. Fun, varied face climbing with a burly finish.

Climb the face past four bolts (9). Sidepulls, underclings, and a quartz dike keep the climbing interesting. Place a green Camalot in a crack and continue up to the roof. Place another green Camalot on the left side of the roof, then work up to a good hold and clip the fifth bolt above the roof. Crank the roof (10) and continue a short distance to the anchors.

Location

On the right side of the crag about 20' right of the route Boulder Slips, by a big tree close to the rock.

Protection

Five bolts to a 2-bolt anchor. Two green #0.75 Camalots can be placed between the fourth and fifth bolts.

A single placement between 0.75" and 2" will be had between the last and second to last bolt if you feel that you want/need that. The climbing there is easier and, unless you are short, not very committing. If you take any given cam in that range, you ought to be able to find a placement for it. If you take the whole range, you could pack them all in there. Sep 17, 2016

I placed a #2 Friend and a 0.75 Camalot. I think you would be ok with just the Camalot at the roof. The bolt is not far above, and the moves from the bolt before the roof are not hard. Jun 7, 2013
Fun route; really fun moves (5.8/5.9) up the slab, and maybe 5.10a at the roof.

We placed an 1.5-inch (orange) Alien and a yellow 0.75-inch Alien. Jul 12, 2007
