Description (middle of wall, unga bunga, climb stuff. ugh) Suggest change

Bollocks - that's what you might find yourself mumbling (shouting?) when lowering off the route straight into thick brush. But that's only half the fun!

Bollocks features fun climbing on big ole' jugs through a right trending vertical wall. Cool undercling moves abound, the climbing is sustained and straightforward, the bolts where you want them... What more do you want from a warm-up?
Cleaning this one can be a pain as thick patches of oak loom to the right. You'll swing in there if you lower and battle them if you rap. Use your brainz.

Location Suggest change

Bollocks is the easternmost route on Tower 1, it starts about 30' right of JimmyG's What the Hell. Look for a prow/sub-tower with a fat roof on the east side of Tower 1. You'll spot bolts heading out of a steep dirt gully capped with brush to the right of said sub-tower.

Protection Suggest change

11 bolts to a 2-bolts chain anchor.
