This is the short bolt route on the west side of the slab. Start from the top of the large pillar, and place a few pieces for the belayer. Climb out and right, and edge up past bolts to the finish of Gaffer. Pull through the finger crack roof to the belay.

There is a short runout 15 feet between the last two bolts. Another will be added to service Gaffer and Best Boy.


A large nut and medium cam for the belay at the base.

4 Bolts (soon to be 5) and an optional yellow TCU for the finish

On second thought..... Climbing it again, it's worth 1 star.
