Description

Slopey jugs going up an overhang about 2/3 the way up is probably the crux. The rock is unusually different from other climbs in the area and is a pleasant change. Super fun bouldery sort of moves.

Location

30 feet to the right of Minor Skirmish.

Protection

8 bolts - it was retro bolted to protect the start. Offset bolt anchors.

This route is actually to the left of Special Forces. There is a decent 11b squeeze job between Timorous and Special Forces. Aug 26, 2014
