Description

Enjoy a bouldery start then zig in a leftward fashion for about 100 feet and zag right for 10 or 20 feet and zap back left for the finish. As far as sketchy Conn climbs are concerned this one is pretty awesome. Some climbers, who do this climb, swear off clipping bolts for the rest of their lives while some climbers, who do this route, poop their pants and go back to clipping bolts for the rest of their lives. Get on it and see if it changes your life.

Location

South West side of Lightning Bolt Rock.

Protection

Standard rack. Be sure to have a couple of #4's. Be mindful of how you place protection for the second climber since falling on a traverse can really suck.
