Description

Another tightly bolted route on good rock. Steep start (the crux) leads to very cruiser climbing to the top.

Location

This climb is located on the south face of Tower One. It starts in a small gully and then ascends the nice clean SE face to the left of the gully. Between What the Hell and Cheap Thrills, both are in the Ruckman giude.

Protection

60 meter rope, Helmet, 11 bolts, 2 bolt anchor.

This one has cleaned up a bit and is probably the better of the new routes right of Cheap Thrills. At least its the most consistent of the newer routes over here. Aug 18, 2012

A bit loose in places so tread carefully. If you lower with a 60 meter rope - the belayer needs to hike up a bit onto the ramp. Better to just rappel - saves the rope and safer on this route. Apr 23, 2012
