Description

This has fun climbing with good movement. It seemed easier than 11b to us on that day. The crux is in the first half of the pitch. This needs some more lichen removed, like all the routes here.

Location

It is just right of Son of Flubber and left of Team Umizoomi. This looked like the 3rd bolt line from the left.

Protection

The guidebook lists 10 bolts (there are more!) to a two bolt anchor. It is closely bolted. Edit: looking at the guidebook, this route clips two more bolts to a higher anchor (past some serious lichen). Done this way, there are even more bolts, and the route is longer, i.e. does a 60m rope still work? 14 bolts?

Climbing this route to the first set of anchors the grade is probably 5.10a/b. From there, follow the 2 bolts left of the anchor (Son of Flubber crosses and does the right finish) to a higher anchor. This makes it 5.11a/b or so. Mar 3, 2017

The rock is awful until after the 3rd bolt. Dec 18, 2017
