BETA PHOTO: Bowling Ball Left


A fun line a and good introduction to the rockband. More of a struggle if you stay in the crack, the easiest way up is climbing the right hand face and using the crack for pro. Gear anchor (2-3").


Starts in a pod right off the ground, quickly narrows to fists/hands with good gear deeper in the crack. Need to do a little bushwacking to get to the start if it has not been climbed recently. Gear belay, walk off to climbers right or rap Mink Stink or Bowling Ball Right.


Standard rack to 3". Doubles 1-3".

Worth doing. Next time someone is out there, do us all a favor and bring a pair of loppers or cut back the bushes!
