Hiroshima

5.9, Sport, 60 ft (18 m),  Avg: 2 from 31 votes
FA: unknown
Montana > Southwest Region > Bozeman Pass > Frat Boy Wall

Description

Variation on both Nagasaki and Duck and Cover. Squeeze job in between the two that heads straight up from the first bolt of Nagasaki on good jugs avoiding the slab traverse of Nag but adding steep moves on great holds. Feels maybe even a little easier due to the intuitive climbing and large holds, but receives a .10a grade in the guidebook.

Double points for a dyno to the obvious huge jug at the overhang.

Very contrived but fun and worth a lap if you are posting up at the Frat Boy Wall (though please don't). Ends on the same slab as both of its neighboring routes and shares holds for most of its upper third with Duck and Cover to the right, otherwise I'd give it more stars.

Location

Second-to-rightmost route on the wall. Very squeezed in.

Protection

Bolts (5) to anchors with mussy hooks. Finish either higher on Nagasaki chains or lower and slightly to the right on Duck and Cover chains for full value.

[Hide Comment] SMCC volunteers replaced the broken bolt along with the rest of them and the bolts on Duck and Cover with new 1/2” SS. Whip all over them! Jul 19, 2019
