Description

"Blowing Bubbles" is an interesting line that is harder than it looks but is likely easier than it's rated. A good warm-up for "Viscious Circles", which is considerably stiffer but similar in style.

Start up low angle features to the right of the bolt line, executing some committing moves to reach the first bolt. I thought this was the mental crux of the route, but it appeared that small gear would have protected this section. Climb more positive pockets to reach a distinct thin crux just past the second bolt. Find the big holds and finish off with increasingly easy (but runout, unless you bring slings for tie-offs or bigger cams) terrain to the anchors.

Location

The second route from the left on the NE face (downhill side of Indian rock). Just right of Viscious Circles.

Protection

2 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor
-- Small cams or nuts may be useful if you're nervous about the high first bolt
-- A long sling might be use useful to tie off a hole in the rock above bolt 2

You can easily top-rope the route by walking around to the 2-bolt anchor
