Details

Description

This is the bolt line on the left side of the southwest face. Climb up good edges to the first bolt. The crux is a dicey balance move to reach a sloper and the second bolt. One more careful move and you can reach the solid edges of the patina. Easy climbing through the patina and two more bolts allows one to reach the top of the boulder and a two-bolt anchor with rap rings. Rappel to descend.

Protection

4 bolts, 2 bolt anchor/rap (all 3/8") shared with Praise the Rays

Holds have broken off this and it's now a little harder than it used to be. The crux now seems to be moving past the 2nd bolt instead of getting to the 2nd bolt. Jan 16, 2012
