I climbed this route on 9/16/2010. Well protected. Look out for gigantic 100+lb slime mold at the base of a difficult chimney high on p1 (bolt & #3 camelot). Belay reeks of animal feces. P2 crux is right off the belay and felt light for the grade.

Not a bad route, but utterly pales in comparison to it's neighbor "Singapore".

I dont know why this route doesnt get more stars. I thought it was excellent thought provoking climbing that protected well at the harder parts. It felt right on at the grade for the "City," and you can do it all in one pitch, I'm not sure why you would break it into two, the rope drag wasn't bad with good use of runners.

Great natural line with good gear. Not sustained but quite fun. Definately worth ding if you are in the area and have a rack.

No anchor up top, but if you brought a couple quicklinks/leaver 'biners you could re-equip an old anchor above the top of She's the Bosch, then do a short rap from there to the actual anchor of She's the Bosch and then a second rap back down to the ground...

This route is a pile of poo, lichen, wasp nests, and flakey rock. And a very long pile at that.
