Description

Broadband Connection" is a link-up of four existing routes and traverses across the breadth of the lower portion of the wall that spans the west face of the Temple of Ishtar and the Tower of Babel, just above the overhung portion of the wall.
Begin at the toe of the buttress, below a loose-looking flake and a maroon colored hanger. Pull up on the flake and into the huecos, clip the bolt and move left, as with the route "Family Affair." Continue left to clip the 2nd bolt on the "Heart Route." Traverse left at the 2nd bolt to "Cross Your Heart." Continue traversing up and left to meet "Texas Two-Step" at its 4th bolt. Traverse around the cobble band on pockets and inclusions, staying just above the overhang that forms the lower portion of the wall. Continue to near the north shoulder of the Tower of Babel and then up to the anchors.

Location

Begin from the toe of the west buttress of the Temple of Ishtar. Start below the fragile looking flake and a line of maroon colored hangers.

Protection

23 bolts & 2-Fixe ring anchors.
