Description

An extremely easy and moderate outing. At the extreme right end of the Family Wall there is an obvious low angle slab that will take you to the top. Awhile ago someone slapped some bolts in to give an extra sense of security.

Fun to blast up to the top, with a good view, though not especially recommended.

Location

The last route on the extreme right of the Family Wall. It will be the obvious easy slab with the bolts halfway up.

Protection

2 bolts (Maybe 3? Can't remember) to some ancient and sketchy cord around a tree.

According to the current guidebook (Handren) "Bullwinkle" is a 5.8, over an overhang; while the 5.2 in the area is "Schools Out", the arete to the right of Bullwinkle with 2 bolts.

I would think that the 2 bolts were placed by the first ascentionists, Joe & Judy Perez, as (in addition to the numerous 5.8 to 5.10's they have put in) their "style" is to provide adequate protection regardless of the grade of the climb, so the 5.2-5.4 leader can have the same experience on one of their 5.2-5.4's as the 5.9 leader on one of their 5.9's. Especially true of the climbs they put in in the "2000's" and "2010's". Sep 30, 2015
