DescriptionWhile the climbing was enjoyable, especially around the third bolt, the rock quality and bolting makes this one worthy of a 'bomb'.
Immediately after clipping the first bolt I pulled two fist-sized chunks off the wall. Fortunately I had the foresight to not use either of these for the clip. This I can overlook.
After the broken band one is forced to climb above a ledge on abysmal rock. The bolt placement is such that should the climber fall due to poor judgement or a hold breaking he will hit the deck.
Lastly pulling the rope dislodged a massive stone that could have seriously injured anyone standing below. My belayer and I were lucky to have not been hit.
In my opinion this route should undergo further cleaning and the bolting should be reconsidered. I am open to other opinions.
LocationThis route is the third from the right; between "Nitrous Oxide" and "Gettin' My Fix". It starts just right of a small tree.
