BETA PHOTO: Bowling Green

Description 

An entertaining line, with little pro. The hard moves are low, but really unprotected, with a ground fall potential if you miss the move. Can be somewhat dirty as it is not often climbed. Definitely rates an 'R' rating!

Location 

Start between the 2 Bowling Ball lines on a bulging face. Get a spot, as the crux is right off the ground and hard to spot. Bushes hide the start. Walk off climbers right or rap Bowling Ball Right.

Protection 

Rack to 3", tricams for pockets and small cams for thin intermittent cracks if you can find them. Gear belay takes 1-3"

Might as well call it 'X'. I felt like it was ground fall the whole way, luckily it is not harder than 5.9 after the first 15'! Where's the pro?
