Description 

Blood Bag has one bolted crux pitch followed by two nice long 5.7 pitches. The first has a bit of loose at the start, but the rest of the route is on great rock.

The first pitch is 11c and is protected bolts and a #3 for the hand crack bit. There is a bolted stance for a rest. Continue straight up then left onto the long moderate slab to another 2 bolt anchor at a cool hang (not over the steep overhang to the chunderdome belay). Climb out and around the corner then up the inside corner to another fun corner slab with a bong in a crack (Covington? Lowe?). Belay off a nice, big pine. To get off of the Chunder Dome, continue up the quartzite ridge to the top, and locate a 2 bolt anchor.

Rappel 35 meters, then walk down talus a bit more, and look for two more bolts on skier's right. Rap this short bit, and then hike down through the trees to the bottom of the slab. Tthen walk left to the start of the route.

Location 

From the start of Astro Zombies, hike left until you can start scrambling up. Continue up on 4th Class to the top of the pines on the right. There are small cairns along the way.

Protection 

A single set of cams to a #3, nuts, and about 12 quickdraws. All the pitches have bolted anchors.
