This is about as fun as a single pitch 5.8 sport route gets.

This climbs the lowest piece of Tahitian Rock left of a significant boulder laying against the rock. The top accesses the gully that Bora Bora start in.

Climb the bolt line with a crux right off the ground. After moving past the first bolt, this is wonderful steep 5.8 jug hauling.

This route deserves to be more popular. This route and The Good Stuff are about as fun as moderate sport gets. Too bad it's out there a ways.

Thought this route was a lot of fun. The bottom can be a bit of a challenge for climbers of this grade, I'd call the first 15' 5.9+. But after that its just great moderate climbing to the anchors. It is a shorter route, but stays in the shade for most of the morning during the summer months which is nice. Throw "Naked Ape" in with it to make a nice morning of climbing.
