  • Description 

    Start Apostrophe off the large tanning slab right of the tree. Thin edges and corners take you to the roof and the blank looking headwall above. Like its neighbor to the left (L.G.H.), Apostrophe holds a crux until you are in the middle of the headwall. There are really two options for finishing. One can power up and traverse left to the original anchor or cut it short a bit and traverse to the L.G.H. anchor, which has always seemed sensible. Apostrophe is quite similar to L.G.H. but seems a bit easier (more like 5.11c), since it does not have the difficult opening move of L.G.H. The final crux seems a bit easier as well. This is a fine route as well.


    Bring 10 draws and a rope.

    FA: Dave Field, Ernie Moskovics and I think maybe Tripp Collins was in on this one - it had a tentative name "Pandora's Bosch" that Tripp coined but didn't stick.

    Long run to the next-to-last bolt. Not especially hard but could be protected well with a finger-midrange cam in the horizontal (Metolius #3-#5, orange through black).
