Description

NIMBY starts with crux moves clipping, and moving past, the first bolt. A second bolt is clipped once you are on easier ground. (Now there are 7 bolts.) Move up the steep face above and place gear before pulling over a small roof onto a good stance. From here, a somewhat runout but easy (5.7) slab with good horizontal edges is climbed to the anchors.

Location

This route is the second route left of Winter Warmer, immediately left of Pass the Basalt. You can see the routes only two bolts (now 7 bolts) easily from the ground. Lower off a two bolt anchor at the top.

Protection

Seven bolts and you formerly needed a rack including nuts and cams to a #1 Camalot. (You needed gear before the addition of 5 bolts). There is a two bolt anchor on top.

No longer R rated, now fully protected with 7 bolts, enjoy. Apr 27, 2014
This will now become one of the Tables little gems - hidden in plain sight. I've looked at this route for years but never dragged the cams up the hill to finish the top. A month or so ago I glanced over from Basalt & Battery and thought I saw a BOLT on the upper slab? A closer look revealed not one but three bolts up there, so we immediately roped up and pounced on it. The crux -clipping bolt two and getting up on the face is a technical masterpiece!! 10a? - no way - 10Feisty!

Thanks, Tz, for updating this one & "opening" it to the public. Oct 27, 2014

Did it again today. It seems difficult for 10a. I think it is more like 10d. Dec 23, 2018
