Description

Wow, what a fine line. Game Changer follows a line of bolts up the tallest, steepest face at the Battress crag. Starting right of Karp Tool, clip the second bolt to encounter the first crux then similar crux difficulty past the next few bolts. Utilize good holds and bomber under clings for each clip which then protects for the next reach transition. This route isn't over until your over. Pun intended! Continue enjoying this route all the way to the top. Two bolt rap anchor with chains and carabiners will allow for lowering, top belay, or rap descent.

Location

30 feet right of Karp Tool and 20 feet left of Simple Math. First bolt protects for the high reach required to clip the second bolt at the first buldged roof. Two bolt rap anchor with chains and carabiners will allow for lowering, top belay, or rap descent.

Protection

Quick draws required

Game changer is a great route and well bolted. Marcus was a true sport bolting this line in 40 degree weather in short sleeves and shorts in about 30 mph wind. We had to take a few breaks in the near by cave to warm up :). I also appreciate him giving me the FFA. Nov 19, 2016

Dude, you're welcome. Good climbing with you and working through the details envolving this natural line of least resistance. It's obvious that your training is really paying off. Nov 19, 2016
