Description

Start Bandu. Go right to the crack.

Per Monty: climb Bandu to the third bolt, then traverse right to the obvious, flaring seam. Slap your way past 2 bolts then enjoy the pumpy climbing above with perfect gear in horizontals. Mantle and clip the chains. (Note: it is is possible to traverse left and rejoin the top of Bandu, but the mantle finish is much more rewarding!

Protection

Toprope.

Bolts, gear (per Monty: to a #1 Camalot).

We added 2 bolts to the seam and sent the finish on gear this past weekend during my bachelor party. I snagged the FA after a long night of debauchery. Needless to say I'd love to name it the "Belligerent Bachelor - 5.12." May 18, 2015
