Another unrelenting burl-fest. Lots of big moves off of decent holds.
According to the Edward's guide, on the first ascent, Requist clipped only 4 of 11 bolts to save time.


Start immediately right of Buddhist Palm on the obvious egg cobble. Meet Buddhist Palm at the anchors.


Bolts with chain draws.

[Hide Comment] Same bat time, same bat channel! I grabbed the second undercling just below the crux, only to feel a scared/angry bat moving around in there. He kept chirping for awhile, I don't think he plans on leaving soon. Luckily the Rabies vaccine is good for 3 years, and it's only been 1.5 years since the last time this happened! Oct 15, 2022
