Description

The Belay Brothers Bounce Back is a fine mixed line. Start in a crack/flake system right of the pine tree growing against the wall. This takes good gear through the lower portion and then transitions to bolts only on the slabby, upper face. Begin with an undercling/lieback on the prominent flake (place a green Camalot here right away or even before you start). Fire out right and stand up to lieback the flake further up (crux). Work up the flake/crack system, which stays steep. Just before the crack ends, it is wide hands/fists. The transition out of the crack and up to the first bolt is tricky, so stay awake. The upper face eases considerably as you approach the anchors.

Location

This is just to the right of the tree growing against the Middle Wall. Start on a prominent, right-facing flake.

Protection

Gear + 4 bolts + 2-bolt anchor. Camalots from #0.5 to #3 are useful (and a #4 in the wide upper part of the crack could make things easier), but alternative placements, including small cams and nuts, exist for just about every one of the larger placements.
