This line is in the middle of the right side of Bowery Rock and is divided by a couple ledges into three sections. Start on the slab above a large, flat rock. Going straight up past the bolt, without using the right edge of the slab, yields a more challenging start at about 5.10a. Using the right edge, although more natural, downgrades this section to about 5.8. Continue up the middle section using side pulls and delicate footwork. Finish on the upper section with a crux on small crimps and careful balance. The climb seems harder than it is due to the amount of lichen on the rock; a fun climb which should be real nice once it sees more traffic. Rappel to descend.


5 bolts, bolted anchor

Very nice climb with some variety, which yields to good balance and technical skill. Enjoyed it so much I did it twice! First bolt can be clipped from the ground. Nov 2, 2013

The best route on this rock with fun stemming past the 2nd bolt and an enjoyable sequence of edges on the final headwall. Aug 7, 2010
