Description Suggest change

Another of my 50/50 routes where half is trad and the other half sport. There will be Blood stands out as an illogically steep route for columnar basalt, with the upper half delivering everything from boulder problem cruxes to jug haul surfing on very exposed terrain.

Start at the head height roof and enjoy good moderate climbing with decent gear along a large right facing dihedral. Clip a bolt with a long runner at 50' just below the roof, then head left on jugs to a plank rest. It's bolts to the top from there.

Eye the line well and be prepared for somewhat strange cranking through the initial little roofs. From there, enjoy interesting slightly off balance moves through the vertical section. It should be painfully obvious when you have to turn it on again, if you had the luxury of turning it down at all. Long moves lead you past amazing holds and a variety of feet. Keeps after you until you clip the anchors, though there is plenty of air around.
