Description

Overhanging start leads to a nice big ledge. A crux overhanging boulder problem gets you off the ledge and onto less steep terrain. Fairly sustained climbing alternates from slightly less-than-vertical to slightly overhanging, and finishes with a nice exposes step up to the anchors.

Location

The left route on the obvious tall wall to climber's left of the staircase and the cave.

A 70 meter rope or two ropes are required for descent.

Protection

17 bolts, bolted anchors with chains, hooks, and a quicklink.

On the first topo that was published on robinsonbluff.com, this route was listed as Bathive 5.10b. On a newer version it is listed as Acres of 9 5.10D. My partner and I both agreed that 5.10d would be a significant exaggeration of the difficulty of this climb, so I have listed it as 5.10b. I am happy to change the listing if the route developer requests I do so. Mar 31, 2018

Amazing route. Nice sustained climbing.

My partner and I skipped several bolts; he used 14, I used 13. Use your discretion. Mar 31, 2018
