DescriptionAs described in the 1993 guidebook, this is more of a series of interwoven lines than it is one single route. Lunch Bucket Ledge is a route towards the left side of the Hospital Rock "Main Wall", the largest visible formation, north of the Hospital Rock parking lot.
The first pitch passes two bolts. You can either belay on the first ledge and break up the first pitch into two pitches, or climb past the anchor and up to the bigger ledge. Many variations past this first two bolt anchor (I prefer the face/cracks to the left).
Pitch two (or three) climbs the green left facing corner, and is best rapped with two ropes.
Chains for rapping are on each belay (3 belays total).
