Ultimate sit start to Charlie Don't Surf, all the way at the back of the cave. Climb the boulder problem known as Hank's B8 (Left) and once you top out on the pancake hold at the tufas, climb into the sport route Charlie Don't Surf. Fun linkup, 50+ feet of climbing, and despite the equivalency of V7~=5.13a, I think this route is on the verge of 5.12d/13a, but Mtn Proj doesn't let me select that slash grade; let's discuss. Try not to walk too far to the right once topping out Hank's B8 on the ledge, to try and avoid excessive resting, try to stay in the boltline of Charlie, because this linkup can be contrived, but not that contrived.


Left-center of the Kingdom of Ging cave, start as for Hank's B8 and finish on the left-most sport route, Charlie Don't Surf.


2-3 pads / spotters & 4 bolts, sport anchors. Recommend starting with harness and chalkbag on for Hank's Left, first bolt pre-clipped is optional.
