Description

Unfortunately this line lacks the stellar pockets and flawless stone that make its neighbors to the left so noteworthy. However, as a rare Shelf .12- that climbs overhanging rock, this is certainly worth doing.

Begin a bit right of the bolt line, then follow a series of right-facing flakes and mini-corners up and left to a cruxy finish, fighting the pump to locate hidden jugs over the lip of the boulder.

Location

This is the furthest right bolted route on The Borg Boulder.

Protection

3 bolts to 2 BA shared with "The Borg".
