Description [Suggest Change]

Ascend blocky ledges through a lower angle left leaning dihedral. This fun romp comes to a halt when you reach a strange section where you will either have to exit the dihedral and do a slab move with out right, or grovel in a strange sideways position past a weird offwidth that tries it's hardest to spit you out.
Finish the weirdness and clip a two bolt chain anchor to lower off. This anchor can also be used to toprope Speckman's.

Location [Suggest Change]

30 feet to the right of Speckmans, this is the left trending offwidth/ramp above that wall.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Single rack to 4, though a 5 fits nicely in the cruxy bit.

Why do I suspect Bob Bates led the FA on this route. Don't know who he was?...look him up. Nov 30, 2017
