Climb up easy ground to the Bolt, Climb past the bolt (crux), and continue up cracks to the top.


This route is located at the Maggot Buttress to the right of the poker pile and before you reach Hermit Haven. Look for a lone bolt 10 ft up on a smooth face


Standard Rack larger cams are helpful,and a quick-draw for the bolt

The tree that was used for an Anchor is now very much dead.. There are some better looking trees further back, I would say this climb could use a bolted anchor if i can get a hold of some equipment i will try and place one up there

I skipped school to put this route up and was supposed to be taking a lord of the flys exam hence the name. I originally did it all trad. But put a bolt in as the micro nut's I had doubbled up probably would not of held. Dec 13, 2011
