Description

Start with a couple tough moves up to a chickenhead and little rail. Continue up on slabby moves to a difficult (and gritty) hand-foot match on another chickenhead for the crux. Finish up with easier moves to the top.

Location

40 feet right of Barefoot in Barbados on the same slab. Chains are accessible by walking up around to the top.

Protection

3 bolts to chain anchors. Chains at the top.

Got any pics? Hard to imagine this is right of barefoot as there is just a tree there, and then a gully. Did they chop down a significant amount of that tree? Feb 25, 2015

Unfortunately I don't have any pictures. It is squeezed in between the gully and the tree. The tree has been trimmed a bit, but it seems like people trim it to keep off of barefoot as well.

Short little line with 3 bolts. The anchors are just a few feet below the barefoot ones. Feb 25, 2015

A bunch of the tree was removed for this 30ft route. 20 feet of climbing to a few 5easy moves to finish with a final bolt that is positioned poorly. Mar 9, 2015

Led this today, after getting shut down on barefoot in Barbados. I really liked it. My shoes were squeaking from how much rubber was on the rock on BIB it's so polished it's not even fun but this climb was clean, fun and not a freebie.
A great alternative. Sep 5, 2016

Short but surprisingly consistent friction. It's easy to cheat this climb and veer right to get on easier terrain. Straight up the bolt line is consistent 5.9 friction slab. Another good TR solo location for slabbing. Aug 15, 2017
