Description

This 3-pitch route wanders up some indistinct features to the right of Groundhog Day.

P1: Clip two bolts below a steep step, which leads to easier terrain. There is one more bolt at another short step before the anchor.
P2: Ill-defined face climbing past a few more bolts takes you to the left of a tree and a bolt-protected crux below the anchor.
P3: Skirt the roof above you on the right, to get to some fun face climbing. You may venture rightward into the dirty slot to place some gear, but keep looking left on the cleaner face for bolts.

To descend, rap the route.

Location

Starts 20' right of Groundhog Day, and stays to the right of it.

Protection

Small rack to 2". Much of the climbing is easy and somewhat run-out. All anchors are 2-bolts with chains.

Somewhat run out, but easy climbing. More bolts than trad placements, bring a very light rack. I don't think it needs any more bolts, there are plenty. Alright climb, but Ground Hog Day is better. Pitch 3 is the best of the route. Apr 28, 2013
It seems like if this route were bolted a little differently and more thoroughly, it could be a lot more fun. As it is, most leaders will want to make some forays into dirty territory to place gear, while bypassing fun-looking but unprotectable face moves. Jul 16, 2012
