This is the “lone two-bolt route” Boissal mentions on the main page for the Lonely Challenge Area. It is yet another “unknown,” but the name given here seems appropriate until someone coughs up the FA party and the name they gave it. You probably are snickering at the 35 feet, but get on it and I bet you’ll think otherwise, unless you are one of those gym mutants with no sense. The two bolts protect the crux well, but the rest will maintain your attention as you fiddle with small gear to prevent decking on your way to the anchors.


About 100 feet downhill from Watermelon Tetris.


Draws and microcams to ¾” – consider doubling up on the micros (I used a full set of C3s and one of the smallest C4s, but I like to back up the small stuff if possible). Bolts rigged for lowering on top.

Not a bad line although the gear in the middle is sketch at best and some of the key holds feel a bit crunchy... Jul 25, 2017
