Description

This route is dedicated to my good friend Matt, aka "The Whopper." He passed away a little over a week ago and will be greatly missed.

This route was made possible by the same mistake that led to the discovery of Buckets of Rain. Two little trees were accidentally removed by JCOS that obscured this part of the wall. I noticed this line then but didn't get around to investigating till today….

This route starts just left of Buckets of Rain and goes straight up passing 7 bolts. Shorter folks might want to stick clip the first bolt. This initial overhang is probably the crux, but there is plenty of interesting climbing above. Watch out for the runout section to the 7th bolt. Then step to the right onto the arête for the easiest access to the anchor.

Protection

7 bolts, 2 bolt anchor.

There was an X at the start of this route today, does that signify anything about safety? Oct 20, 2015

Not sure what that's about. Was the X on loose looking rock? Maybe it's marking buried treasure? Oct 21, 2015

I felt this was just a little bit harder than Buckets of Rain, especially given the bouldery (but easy) start. Moves are obvious all the way up and pretty fun. Pretty dirty between the last bolt and anchors - maybe some debris from the recent rockfall? Jun 1, 2016
