Social Promotion is likely the hardest route at Bonsai, and has a very separate style from the typical Rumney route. After you shake off the pump from A Slice of Life, give this one a try!

From a large jug at the second to last bolt of A Slice of Life move the right via bouldery moves on crimps to a massive horn jug and a fixed draw in the middle of a very steep face. From the horn the last crux boulder problem is either done as a huge throw to a good hold that flexes a little, or via incredible body tension and finger strength though a series of underclings and pinches.


An intimidatingly steep face above a Slice of Life and Peer Pressure. Climb Slice of Life to the second to last bolt before breaking right to 2 more bolts of hard stuff.


Bolts, fixed draw at the crux.
