This route has nice rock and nice movement. It is a really good route that deserves more attention.


Look for the line of bolts on the varnished rock just left of Jabba. Finish on the last few moves of Jabba the Hutt Levitates. Rap from the anchor.


Bolts. One could bring a hand-sized cam for the top.

This route is awesome, and I would love to climb it more. Would anyone be opposed to an anchor at the top of this route before mantling into the dirt?
