Description Suggest change

After staring up at it for the longest time I finally decided that the hot summer days of July would be the perfect time to remove the remnants of the final vacant beehive midway up The Bowling Alley and scrub the hueco that housed it in hopes of finding the crag "warm-up".

Well we got a good one, and it really ties the wall together does it not?  Climb through the lower and still slightly chossy section and be rewarded with great climbing for the remaining 55 feet.  Large pockets and pods will deposit you at a spicy mantle sequence with two very different solutions, and that fourth bolt is up there a ways which makes standing up on the small ledge a bit of an attention getter.  Above the ledge make your way to the former bee hotel where a GIANT thread awaits you.  Chill here for a minute before heading up and slightly right for the next two bolts and the crux of the climb.  Gain another ledge and execute a few more trivial moves on your way to the chains.

Pretty sweet the way this section of wall filled in with a route going through each of the large huecos.         

Location Suggest change

Right of Stealing Thunder.  You can't miss the large hueco bisected by a massive thread feature.

Protection Suggest change

7 bolts to lower-off anchors.
