Description Suggest change

This is a wild pitch that chimneys across a hudge bombay roof for about 70' and ends at a 2 bolt anchor. I rated it 10b because a rating was required to post a new route. This is the first time I have climbed anything like this. It may feel easy to you. There were 2 short wet sections when I did it that were the crux, very slick and not so nice. (Don't climb this pitch when wet).

To get to the route you climb Handle With Care a very fun bolted 10c face route then Slinging the Blues a 5.9 right facing corner. Also while your there don't forget to climb Eye of the Liger a steep 10a splitter that starts off the same ledge as Slinging the Blues.

Location Suggest change

Walking between the Cockshead and Haley Anna it's hard to miss the gaping maw of the Bombay Bitch looming above. A right facing corner leads to the obvious Bombay roof. The corner is Slinging the blues a 8+/5.9 #3 camalot size crack. To get to Slinging the Blues and Eye of the Liger it is most enjoyable to climb Handle with care a fun 5.10c mostly face pitch. Handle with care starts in a shady area several 100' before reaching Hayley Anna. After passing the Cockshead and before entering the shady treed area, look for a few bolts on a golden face. After the last bolt you make a traverse to the right to get to the cool perch of Slinging the Blues.
