Hunter's Left Layback

Fourth route from the south. 9 bolts to the anchor chains. Hunter Barrett was the first to climb this when he was 14 in 2007.

There are two cruxes. The first crux is about 20 feet up in the second pocket. This is the layback move. The second crux is about 35 feet. I went to the left to stay out of the large horizontal crack. It looks like a good place for snakes if you jam your hand way back in there.

I keep my head below the upward left sloping crack. There are several hand size pockets. See the photo montage for beta.

The route is fun, but has too many bolts. This was my first route to bolt. The bolts are solid, just too many of them.

This route was my first attempt at bolting up a route. I over bolted it with 9 bolts to the anchor chains.

From the bottom, you'll see two slightly indented pockets with bolts in the middle of the bottom pocket. The layback is the crux move in the second (upper) pocket. Dec 6, 2009
The most fun route on the wall. I agree that there may be too many bolts.
