Description

Fun route with unique, dynamic movement. It's a bit contrived in the sense that if you decide to mantle onto the mossy ramp by bolt two instead of staying on the arete, you can avoid the crux. However, this really isn't too tempting because all the holds that are "off" are covered in moss.

The route starts with some balancy slab moves to get established under the second bolt. From here, power up and right through an intricate and gymnastic ascending traverse that requires big moves between large sloping holds. The difficulty backs off after a good rest at the fourth bolt.

Location

On the right side of Lyme Disease Rock, the first bolted route uphill of the classic "Ticks Ripped My Flesh", 5.10b. Not as far uphill as "Lucky in Love". Look for bolts that go up and noticeably right on a bulbous arete-like feature.

Protection

4 bolt to a two-bolt anchor
-- the first bolt is kind of sketchy and could use replacement
-- it would be difficult to TR (without directionals) because of the traversing nature of this route

First bolt is definitely sketchy. The hanger is spinning at this point and I wouldn't trust a fall on it. Mar 19, 2017

The amount of moss and debris on the holds here is irritating. The first bolt is downright dangerous. Glad you survived the fall Bobby^ Jul 25, 2016

Took a leader fall on the first bolt 6/15/16, and it held. Didn't read that this bolt needs replacement until after. Jun 16, 2016
