This is the farthest right route of the Project Wall "warm up routes". Bottom Feeder is the easiest route on the PJ Wall, but it's also one of the spookiest due to minimal use of bolts. It's actually not too runout, but I wouldn't throw a budding 5.11 leader on it (or would I?). The climbing is fun and the route is well worth doing.


6 8 bolts.

Did this to the 2nd anchor today. This makes for a full 30m pitch & the climbing on the extension is excellent. No drilled pockets or other treachery like Top Feeder, (i.e. the 3rd anchor) just good technical moves & a great position on the Project Wall. Bring your own quickdraws for the upper bit. (5 or 6) I didn't think the extension added anything to the grade but it definitely adds to the quality.

Almost all of the old bolts on this have now been replaced with glue-in hardware from the ASCA. Just the original 2nd bolt remains. Enjoy.
