Mantle a ledge, reach around the corner and dead point for the next ledge. Follow the corner to the top. Some fun moves.


Left of Penitent Crack is a face with one bolt in it. That's your climb. Do the mantle or skip it by starting left.


One bolt and manky trad pro. TR is best.


Almost as fun as senior prom... Sep 15, 2010

I remember thinking that the bolt was in a strange place. Kind of too low to do any good. Someone should relocate the bolt, add a few more, and modernize this thing. The Hollow needs a good 5.10 sport route. Feb 3, 2011
This climb is named after the 6in blade I stow under the seat of my purple Jeep.

A worthy retro bolt for sure, the rock's way bad for gear. Feb 3, 2011

Slightly easier if you go around the corner right after the mantle, especially for shorter climbers. Apr 13, 2012

You can lead it but it's definitely scary. Those sandy ledges blow for placements. I onsighted it with a half a set of nuts a friend threw up to me after I started. Saw the bolt and assumed it was all bolted. Mistake! Oct 15, 2015
