Start right of “Camel.” Climb steep moves out right while working your way up to a left-facing seam.


Directly right of "Camel."


Toprope from the "Camel" anchors.

Don't get me wrong; I wasn't suggesting that bolts would be appropriate. I was mostly commenting on the quality of the climb and that it would make a good lead (like many other top rope climbs). I think it would be inappropriate and unnecessary to bolt this climb. Feb 17, 2012
fa (toprope) I did it around 1986, named it slimy not Slippery, the hole was damp -- but that don't mean taint.

I never bolted it as I thought bolt #2 would be too close to Camel, and No Permits right there also, but you kids go get what you need ehh?

If you bolt it they will come . . . Feb 11, 2012

Totally agree with Ryan. Since the FA is unknown, would it still be totally out of line to bolt it? Rivals Camel in quality, but with a unique style of movement. Feb 10, 2012

I dont think this route is 10c anymore; a crucial hold broke, which coincidentally exposed a larger hold, thus making the crux not so cruxy

If you finish on the same ending as Camel, the move with the softball-like grip is probably 10c tho.. Oct 31, 2011

Every time I top rope this after climbing Camel, I can't help but wish there were bolts to clip. In my opinion, the route quality is right up there with Camel itself. Oct 16, 2011
