Description

Bugs Eat Frogs 5.7+ / 5.8- ( 5.3 -5.4 R) FA Dick and Karen Traverse Jul, 1995

P1- Climb the left rising ramp, clip the bolt and make a 5.7+ to 5.8- move to a shelf and climb to the right. Find the 2nd bolt and climb directly up (5.7), passing a horizontal foothold, the 3rd bolt and a hollow-ish flake. [Best not put any cams behind it!] Move left to the triple-bolt belay anchor. 80-90ft 5.7+ to 5.8-

P2- Straight up on easy, but unprotected, slab and head for the right end of the overlap where the dike [Picnic Table] cuts through it. A solid belay can be made here with #1 & #2 Camalots. 80 ft 5.3R

P3 - Climb the dike, continue on it for 60-70 feet until one can climb up right to the Rap tree. 100 ft 5.4 --- P2 and P3 can be combined, but best done with at least a 200 ft (60m) rope.

Location

START: If you have rapped the “Bugs” rap then you are there. If not look for a shallow ramp that rises to the left and leads to a bolt on the right. This is about 20 feet left of the climb Hornet which is a shallow but pronounced right-facing flake, and about 60 feet left of a rotten cave-like area.

Protection

P1 3 bolts to fixed anchor; P2 #0.5, #1, #2 Camalot; rap tree anchor at top
