Description

The crux comes right off the ground and is basically a boulder problem getting past the first bolt, about V5. Bring a stick clip for the first bolt or you can solo up the 5.easy southeast face and rap to the anchor bolts, then rap down the route again to get a draw clipped on the bolt. A new bolt is going to be added soon so that a stick clip won't be necessary. This is a great route with a stout boulder problem off the ground to exciting arete climbing higher up. The upper section is a somewhat consistent 5.10.

Location

This route is located on the northwest side of The Egg. It would be best to climb this line at low tide and I don't know if it's even possible to climb it at high tide but I wouldn't recommend it. Rap off the double bolt anchors.

Protection

There are super bomber bolts on this line but, again, the first bolt should be stick clipped until another bolt is added lower. Double bolt anchor at the top that can be rapped off of.

Are people starting this by using the small boulder on the right for feet?
As with many of these seaside formations this route is still (perpetually) exfoliating. Yesterday we had a lot of pebbles and some quite large (baseball sized) rockfall from this route. Sep 10, 2017

The first new bolt is appreciated, but placed too low to be safe going to the second bolt, decking would be inevitable if you don't make it to the second. V5 Boulder to 5.11a slab. The seaside location of this climb amplifies the awesomeness of this climb. Jul 30, 2017
