Description

A challenging route whose crux is through the first two bolts. Due to erosion the first bolt is farther off the ground than when the route was first created. Use the crack that's to the left of the bolt line and the route is rated 5.8.

Location

Starts on the block immediately to the right of Bunny Face.

Protection

Quickdraws. Two bolt anchor.

This climb happens to be named after a favorite parasite of one of the climbers in our group so we had to climb it. It was a standard 5.9 I thought. Nothing so memorable on the route as the name would suggest. Might as well climb it if you're in the neighborhood anyway. Jul 11, 2010

Start is tricky for sure. Finish it up by doing the second pitch of Bunny Face from the top of Anclystoma. Mar 23, 2011
Super slick feet on the start which adds to the challenge of hitting the first bolt. Well polished route. Oct 13, 2014

Short, but enjoyable climb. If you want a longer adventure, the second pitch of Bookworm (5.6 slab) is directly above Ancylostoma. I counted 9 bolts on the second pitch. A 60m rope did not reach the ground from the second set of anchors, so plan on 2 rappels to reach the ground if you decide to go all the way :) Oct 30, 2015

A fun climb, not a great second lead for beginners on the next door 5.7s due to bolt spacing. Mar 20, 2016

80m rope just barely reaches the ground from the top anchors. Really fun for a 40m top rope! Jun 2, 2016
