Description

P1 Face climb to an old, hangerless bolt and cinch this off. Don;t be tempted to follow the crack up and left...the line goes directly up from the old bolt over edges and smears following a faint groove and some fantastic features, past a couple bolts, a few placements, to an old two-bolt anchor.

P2. Less memorable than P1. From the belay on top of P1, the route goes up a shallow groove like feature, past a bolt at twenty feet, a few more feet of face climbing, then the angle lessens and it backs off quite a bit.

Location

Way right end of BG, past the Full Shred Buttress approximately 300' under an obvious up and left diagonaling crack.

Protection

BG rack....small/funky. Tricams and alloy offsets handy on this route for sure. The route wanders a bit and two ropes are required to get down....doubles recommended.

Gave this route an upgrade today. All three bolts and the anchor on pitch 1 are new. The first bolt even has a friggin' hanger now too... Aug 27, 2013
i think this route's hairball too. as with ground control, go climb pitch 1 of paralleling. if that pitch goes well do pitch 2. Sep 26, 2011
