Description [Edit]

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

Location [Edit]

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

Protection [Edit]

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
