Description

Starts with a slabby V1/2 for the first 3 bolts. Bolts 3-6 are big shouldery moves on decent holds with a solid V4 iron cross drop down in the middle - this is the crux section. Rest in cave then fire the last moves from bolt 7 thru anchors on a series of small flat jugs.

Location

On the far right side of Blues Wall. Starts just past the giant wet streak and tufa about 30' in from the end of the roof.

Protection

7 Bolts plus Sport Anchors

Fantastic route, and quite varied in its moves. The iron cross crux was just as hard for me as coming over the mini-roof after the slab, and even harder was fighting the pump to make it up to the cave rest. I hope this route stays intact, however, since I noticed that two key holds had been cemented back on, and I even broke a part (not the good part) of the undercling at the first mini-roof. Regardless, BB King is well worth the time. Dec 4, 2015
