Teri at the second bolt of Black Bunny Rabbit.


Black Bunny Rabbit has 8 bolts and shares a 3 bolt anchor with First First. All but the last lead bolt were drilled by hand before I got a power drill. The start has a bad landing if you blow it before the first clip. You will either land on cactus or a fin of rock that sticks out of the ground, but the moves are relatively easy, you can stick clip if you don’t like it. It’s really close to First First in several places, but it stays right and follows the bolts till the end. If it looks like the bolt is too far right, you are too far left. Watch out for the cactus.


This is 8 feet right of First First.


8 bolts.

Nice route with good moves on generally good rock. The last few feet are loose and there is lot of cactus just beneath the anchors. And how stable is the large boulder beneath and right of the anchor?

Thank you for your comment, David. I tried to clean as much of the loose rock from the route as I could. There was a lot to clean, so I probably missed some stuff. I did leave that big rock at the anchors there because I tried to pry it loose and it wouldn't move. It makes me nerves as well, but it seemed pretty stable at the time I put the route up. It might have to go at some point. As for the cactus, there is a lot of it, but there was a nice little clearing to stand and set up your anchor, so I left it alone. If someone was motivated to remove the cactus, I wouldn't be offended, but I do think it adds to the nature of the route, and I didn't really feel it was in the way.
