Description [Edit]

A classic route that seems so improbable for the grade. Climb the popcorn tuffas on the right to the roof, then move left under the roof to the apex of the cave. Cross to the left wall and exit onto the headwall.
A bit of rope drag so lengthen the clips through the transitions of walls.
Even if this grade is beneath you, get on it and enjoy.

Location [Edit]

The route starts on the right side of the grotta. Look for the name painted on the rock.

Protection [Edit]

13 bolts to anchor.

Awesome fun. Be aware that after the first upward part (6 bolts?) you have to traverse right across (and clip with an extended draw) the anchors of 'Bridget' and then 'Under a Dead Cow' before crossing over the cave to your next lone bolt.

It is tempted to extend the last bolt before the traverse, but we found this puts the rope in a bad place dragging across some popcorn features, and it worked better for us to start using extended draws at the 'Bridget' anchor for the next 4 bolts or so. Apr 5, 2018
