Description

This is a good route protected with gear & bolts that goes out of the cave and onto the slab above. The name is a bit of a mystery, although the cave does drip with water. Watch out for marmots ;)

Start up in the cave with some chimney stemming clipping a bolt. Some may find this difficult, but finding the right sequence makes it 5.7. Pull onto the slab and chase 4 more bolts that you can supplement with some gear. At the 5th bolt, the 5.7 variation, The Voodoo That You Do, goes to the right. Continue up and into a shallow crack (crux). Clip 2 more bolts and reach the 2 bolt anchor with chains.

Rappel the route. Consider knots if you are using a 70m rope.

Location

This starts in the cave on the Labyrinth Wall and goes out onto the slab.

Protection

7 bolts & small gear to #0.5 or #0.75. 2 ropes or be careful with a 70m (it's a stretcher).

All three climbs share the same anchor. It's been a while since I've climbed this route, but there shouldn't be any large run-outs. Jul 15, 2017
I may have gotten confused with this route as this and The Voodoo were my 1st mixed leads and my 1st trad non crack climbing routes.

I only saw one set of anchors at the top of the route and they appeared to be for the babe with the power. Do the 7, 9, and 10 all share the same anchor, is there a very long run out at the top of this route, or are the hangers missing? Jul 15, 2017

It is too bad that this climb has such a lousy name. It is a really fun climb! Really good rock quality and fun moves. Make sure and bring gear... you definitely need to place some gear. Aug 2, 2015

I felt that the trad crux was harder than the cave. Fun route. Sep 30, 2013

The upper crack is 5.7/8 not 5.9 and not the crux, is the trad crux, need some small cams, the crux is the cave. Sep 9, 2013

If wind is broken in the cave, the name will reveal itself.... May 22, 2013
