Description

Big moves, crimps, jugs even a roof! Decompression Sickness is the sickness! Never mind its sandbagged reputation, get on it!

Start on face and climb up and left around buttress. Use long draws on first few bolts to cut down on rope drag. Move through a crimpy section to good stance just below a small roof. From here power straight up roof on jugs to easier ground and anchors or traverse ten feet left to the excellent alternate route The Bends (5.11c).

Location

Main Area  Impact Zone: Start in front of big buttress just left of Barnacle Bill.

Protection

Sport: 8 bolts/anchors

Be super careful before the 2nd bolt! Definite grounder possibility there. The belayer may want to stand on the boulder near the route's start and plan on jumping off in case of a blown clip. Nov 6, 2013

There's a bolt just above the roof that is hidden from view when directly below roof. Aug 17, 2015

There's a three-way junction at the 5th bolt. Left goes to the 5.11 variation, middle goes up the standard route and right seems to have been chopped -- i.e. hangers have been removed from the bolt line above the 5th bolt, right side. For protection, take the left or middle routes. Oct 17, 2016
