The crux. Moving left is reasonable, but then it's hard and spooky clipping the next bolt. Climbing straight up leads to a difficult clip and an even harder move. I ended up clipping the bolt above then lowering and moving left.

[Hide Comment] "One move wonder" is very accurate. Some of the coolest climbing on the wall is the top half of this route, although it is pretty easy. Dec 27, 2010

[Hide Comment] The first bolt is literally 20 ft off the deck and it's not exactly trivial or a jug hall getting to it, pretty technical. Would it have killed you to put in a lower bolt??? A standard stick clip wouldn't even reach. Ankle breaks could definitely happen here. Thanks but no thanks. Dec 22, 2019
