Keeping climbs open depends on maintaining good relationships with locals and monks. Details

Description

Similar to its neighbor ('Snake Hickey'), Bite the Bullet starts relatively easy before hitting a two-bolt crux mid route. The crux is brilliant, using an unlikely pinch and a left-hand gaston. Once you get to the huge jug lip, it's pretty much over.

Location

2nd from the left on Alamo Wall, number 2 in the Alamo Wall topo photo, the route starts on a big tufa feature.

Protection

5 glue-in wave bolts to two-bolt anchor with rings. Bolts installed October 2016

Easy going start to a definitive crux. I love the moves through the crux! Different style than the routes on the right side of Alamo Wall. Good stuff!! Dec 19, 2016
