Description

Follow the right-hand set of bolts on the right-most slab/wall of Left Hand Rock straight up the slabby face to a bulge with a near-vertical crack. A well-placed flake helps to surmount the bulge. Most of the route runs about 5.6 or 5.7, but the bulge is probably 5.8-.

Location

This route is the right-most of the two bolted routes located on a wall/slab that is just to the left of and about 40' downhill from Coloroddity on Big Ass Slab. Far downhill to the left you will find Gilded Lily (formerly identified as Kiss the Blarney Stone).

Protection

Approximately 5 bolts, some widely spaced. Two bolts at top with twist-links for an anchor. A bit run-out between the 2nd and 3rd bolts. The possibility of a long fall if one slips before reaching the 3rd bolt exists. Use of small C4 cams or C3s may be possible between the 2nd and 3rd bolts.
Gorgeous rock quality for these slabby sport climbs. Get on it, fun. Oct 3, 2014

More fun than T-Rect. TRed this, so don't really have any comments on leading it, but the difficulty was a bit higher than T-Rect. Oct 4, 2009
