All climbers must use existing rappel stations for descent. MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Kinda sketchy clipping first bolt. Difficult bouldery original start straight past first bolt is often ignored in favor of more obvious larger holds to the left allowing a traverse-around. Ponder the 10' roof and bear-down. It is no gimme...

Location 

On ledge uphill and left of Boardwalk. Above Gumfighter.

Protection 

TCUs, small wires, three bolts, one pin
