Warning Stainless-steel bolts are suspect near the coast. A rebolting effort is underway. Details

Description

On a wall filled with great routes, this one stood out as really great. Start up by bouldering onto the tidal ledge. There are two bolts to clip here, make sure you clip the one with the red epoxy, (I clipped both of them). From here make big moves between good holds. Finally stalagtites present themselves for a much needed rest and easier ground to the anchors.

Location

On the beach 2 routes right of the classic Babes in Thailand., between the two 13b's Elephant and Ant Jump. Not accessible at high tide unless you want to get your rope and belayer wet.

Protection

6 Bolts to Anchors, Rebolted in 98, first bolt new in 05. All other bolts have the white epoxy.

Super Route!! Overhanging and sustained for the first section with some questionable clipping stances but boy oh boy does it go! Round halfway up it mellows out and makes for an amazing pitch. Make sure to have a second clean it because cleaning while getting lowered is horrendous.
