Description

A.K.A. A Pox in Vulgaria - A fantastic route for the grade, just not very long. Well protected, good rock, and some good overhanging moves that require pulling on jugs with minimal feet. Provides a nice pump for the portly. Some of the stances were a little reachy, but were very logically placed. The Smith & Tusting guide specifies that there are 8 bolts, so I may have skipped one, but it still wasn't run out. A great view rewards those reaching the top. Vulgaria can easily be top-roped from an approach trail on the east side of the cliff.

Location

Third route from the east end of the cliff (first bolted route). Climbs the left side of an arete. Walk off to the east or rappel from the anchors.

Protection

7 camouflauged bolts to a two bolt anchor (with a rappel ring and a quicklink).

This route can also be led on gear straight up the bolt line if you’re a trad climber looking for more routes to do. Better as a gear lead IMO. The bottom protects well with small cams right near the bolts. The gear is all there.

Edit to add: the top can be led out on the arete with some weird placements or the standard crack finish. Aug 26, 2018
