Description

This face climb works left, then back right and then up to the anchors. The crux between the 6th and 7th bolt can be avoided by climbing to the left and then traversing right to clip the last bolt.

Location

This route is on the Piggy Bank Wall between Pinon Slalom and Ladies Night In Buffalo.

Protection

7 bolts to a ledge with high anchors above.

Well protected and fairly straightforward climbing all the way to the anchors. Dec 29, 2011

This climb reminded me of "old school" bolting, where they are spaced out a little more widely but placed where you need them. The bottom is slabby like climbing on granite.

If you are used to clipping a bolt before the hard moves (with the bolt above and the rope above you (a "top rope")), this is not that kind of route. But it is still well protected. Mar 16, 2012

A much better choice for the 5.8 leader than Ladies Night in Buffalo to the left, despite what the guidebook says. This one is casual, especially if you head straight up and then traverse right to the 7th bolt. May 14, 2014
