Description

First climb set in The Refuge. Name derived from the James Bond movie, "Octopussy." First climbed ground up in a wandering way while rope-soloing and searching for good gear placements. Two subsequent leads of the climb convinced AMH to add the bolts to insure a straight line through the crux of the bulges, which increased the difficulty of the climb. Original placements were all horizontal and the cruxes barely protected with small cams. Bolts protect the cruxes, but climb and belay carefully as the most difficult bulge requires very committing moves to clear.

Location

The centerpiece of the area, see map.

Protection

Small gear with some medium placements and 3 bolts protect the crux bulges.
