Description

Fun pumpy 5.10 with a stout crimp crux right in the middle. After placing a nut above the first bolt traverse slightly left then follow the bolt line to the chains. The bolt line that goes up and right from the nut is "Top Heavy."

Location

Right side of the Bowling Ball wall (south side of the Tower). First bolt is about 25' up.

Protection

#1 camalot before the first bolt, medium nut after the first bolt, quickdraws. Chain anchor.

The "Tombstone," sounds like a job for Fix-it-Quick. Feb 4, 2013

The "tombstone" has been flexible for a long time. That would be a horrifying hold to have rip, especially since you really have to yard on the thing.... and then stand on it too! Nov 18, 2012

The big jug near the top flexes, so be wary. Nov 18, 2012
