Description

This is a short but pumpy route that heads up through a bulge. I felt like the crux was between the 2nd and 3rd bolt.

Per John Byrnes: this is a hard 9-move boulder problem with a little climbing at the top. The crux is figuring out what to do!

Location

It is located about 20' to the right of a small cave.

Protection

4 [old] bolts, steel biners, and 6 draws.

Per John Byrnes: this route is in serious need of rebolting. #1 bolt is NOT to be trusted. #2 bolt is not much better and too low to be of much use. #3 bolt (with chain draw) is the best of the bunch. The left anchor bolt is a spinner. Stick clip #3 to keep yourself off the deck. Clip #1 & #2 to keep the rope out of your way.

Fun little climb you can read from the ground. Would get more stars if it was longer, but great for any 5.11 climber looking to get into Rifle roofs but is intimidated of a long route. Oct 14, 2013

The big sidepull between the first and second bolt is moving, so be careful. Sep 14, 2009
