Description Suggest change

This difficult boulder problem of a route is actually well worth the try, even though it only features about 20' of harder climbing. There used to be a single bolt 15' off the ground, but someone chopped it. For now, TR off of Stigmata, or free solo it.
Climb up a powerful sequence to get to where an old bolt stem is broken off. Then at the small overhang, cut hard left and pull into a right leaning hand crack and follow up to Stigmata anchors. If you go straight up from the bolt, and over the bulge, the route goes at a strenuous 5.12a. The 5.12a part, and the easier trad section of The Bulge are often dirty early in the season. It's worth a few minutes to brush the hard parts before attempting. However, the 5.11c crux is typically clean year-round.

Location Suggest change

Just 10' left of Stigmata.

Protection Suggest change

TR for now, will update when bolt is replaced. Otherwise gear to 3" for Stigmata finish. I may add an anchor at the top so you don't have to do the Stigmata finish
