Blue Collar Holler


Boulder up to a small leaf-covered ledge. Head up a corner crack until the chimney off-width can be protected with 3"-4" cams. Thrash through the OW slot as best you can to gain a ledge just left of a rhodo thicket. There is an optional belay here. Next, use small cams and two bolts to do a delicate dirty eyebrow dance to a double bolt anchor.


The route can be found 50ft left of the obvious right facing corner system listed as "Unknown 3". An obvious cave and OW crack are the unmistakable landmark. Rappel the route with one 60m rope.


Bring a full range of camping devices to 4". Doubles on the small end of the range could be helpful.
