Description

A really fun route with a challenging start on small holds. After a few tense initial moves, grab a huge right hand jug and figure out how to get a leg up and do a powerful rolling move onto a foot and into the real crux.

Now its just a matter of time until your muscles explode and your will power self destructs. The crux itself might clock in at around 5.12c but once its over the rest of the climb winds down to 5.11, 5.10, 5.9 and once the dust settles you'll clipping the anchors from a very mellow stance.

This route has really good rock. However, the slab above might drain in a way that could affect lower holds. Don't have a cow if its a bit dusty. Polish it up with a toothbrush and go to town. Time Bomb might not be the prettiest gal at the dance, but she gives classic climbs, like Ripsnorter and Turkey Vulture, a run for their money. Get on it and get blown away!

Location

For now, this is the left-most route at The Goldmine wall. There is a stripped bolt line just to the left that may get outfitted with hangers soon.

Protection

Bring 8 quickdraws. Stick clip first two bolts if you want to survive the initial blast of awesomeness.
