Description Suggest change

This is a decent route on the left side of the lower Bowling Alley roadside section. It has an awkward crux that is suddenly perplexing, but it eases quickly.

Start with a stem off a tiny pinnacle on the left and get onto the crack. Two moves up and you're suddenly trying to figure out how to get into a rest position, which is challenging. A lieback and quick step up and you get jugs, easier terrain, and regaining of your equilibrium. Pull onto the slab. You can move right and downclimb to the 2 bolt anchor to rappel or scramble off to the left.

Location Suggest change

This is the leftmost of the lower Bowling Alley routes. It is just left of Dry Run.

Protection Suggest change

Bring a light rack to a #2 Camalot. You can sling the tiny tree to the left with a 48" sling plus a quickdraw, but it might not hold a fall. #0.5 & #0.75 Camalots at the top are useful.
