Description 

This is one of the best routes in Box Springs! Starting just below the right end of the horizontal crack, climb up through a series of delicate crimps using all the technique in your arsenal. The first 15’ are rather sustained for the grade; balance and sequence are the keys. Above the horizontal, your efforts are rewarded with lower-angle climbing on this wall’s namesake knobs. Finish at a bolted anchor just below the apex of the wall, shared with the three routes to the left. Descend via easy walk-off to the northeast, away from the climbs, or down-climb Knobulator.

Protection 

3 bolts, bolted anchor
