Start with easy climbing on the broken slab on the left side of Bowery Rock. Use care while surmounting the top of the slab because the large upper plate is loose and could shift. After clipping the first bolt, continue up the headwall. Some interesting moves define the crux, protected by the second bolt. Finish on positive holds past one more bolt, and another interesting sequence, to a large belay ledge with rap anchor. A great lead that keeps you on your toes! This climb has seen few ascents and still needs a lot of cleaning but is surprisingly sticky for the feet, except for the finishing move. Rappel to descend.


3 bolts, bolted anchor

Fun edging moves on good rock but it's really short with only about 20' of actual climbing. Be aware that the first bolt is fairly high and you need to make some moves to clip it instead of from the good ledge below. Aug 7, 2010

Technical face climbing with interesting crisp holds - well worth doing. You have to pull a move to clip the first bolt, an error here could lead to broken bones or a flip head-over-heels, not good. There's small cam potential on top of the large Africa shaped flake which constitutes the opening section of the climb. Nov 2, 2013
