Description

This is the best line on the wall and probably the best moderate warm-up at The Bunker. The rock is largely perfect and the position is spectacular, offering great views of the canyon as well as the formidable lines peppering the north side cave.

Begin by stemming and liebacking up the detached flake. Jam carefully past some intermittent guano to reach a slab stance below the roof. Thoughtful but easy climbing works around the roof to the base of the hanging slab. The first crux is manteling over this bulge, which can be done directly, or by moving right onto The Smear Hunter. Both options are about the same difficulty. Two more easier mantels lead to a good shake in the high pod. The final crux is the overhanging headwall, which begins with good jugs and ends with a burly reach to the lip of the wall.

Location

This route is located on the West Face of the Bunker. This is the first bolted line from the left, beginning up a 15-foot tall chimney and then heading left to avoid the lowest roof.

Protection

9 bolts to 2 bolt anchor with fixed biners. About 5 bolts have fixed draws.

Fun but definitely not spectacular rock - has some loose/chossy sections still. Might clean up over time. Would give 2.5 stars as is now with loose sections and guano, and 3 stars once cleaner. Maybe 11c, but some trickiness. May 31, 2016

Really enjoyed this route! Besides the first 1/4, it had thought provoking unique movement and underclings left and right! Oct 5, 2016
