Description Suggest change

A new route as of September 21, 2019. Expect flaky bits and loose rock if you venture far from the bolt line. Tread lightly as it cleans up--it has seen only a handful of ascents in millions of years. :-) 

Like its neighbor to the left, Bovary starts up lower angle rock to the big ledge. From the ledge, climb up and mostly right of the bolt line on great pockets as the rock steepens. Pull harder moves leading up to the final, tough bulge at the top. Pop over the bulge to the anchors.

Location Suggest change

Bovary is the middle route of the three routes on the left wall in the Birth Canal.

Protection Suggest change

9 bolts to a two bolt anchor with lowering biners
