Description

Wasn't sure what to name this, so i just named it based on the closest route to it, if anybody knows anything about this route, PM me and I'll update the description.

One of the better routes at the lowers and is notably absent from the 3rd edition of the Dixie Cragger's Atlas, though the line is easy to spot in the picture for the area (has a top rope hanging down over it)

Easiest way to get up to the base of this route is to start to the right of Four Bravo and trend right up the slab past an old rusted bolt until you reach the first good bolt on the overhang. If leading, careful belay is advised due to ground fall potential on the slab. Placing a piece of gear in between the first and second bolts may help to mitigate the possibility of decking.

Jug haul up the overhang clip the second bolt. From here the holds get smaller and the feet become slabbier up to the third bolt. Top out and clip the anchors with rappel rings

Location

20'' to the right of Four Bravo

Protection

4 bolts, single piece of gear in between the first and second bolt if you want

Went back to try and lead this guy today. The holds are pretty dirty and some of them have filled up with dirt and have weeds growing out. Best to clean it on rappel and then give it a go if you want to climb it before the first freeze of the year. Sep 26, 2016
