The bolt spacing between the 3rd and 4th bolt is a little awkward. The traverse can safely be protected with pro if desired. The view from the top is well worth the climb.


Right of Lead Balloon and left of Stick Figure Stays Home.


7 bolts then the chains.

I came across a hornets nest after the third or fourth bolt.

I got stung in the ear by one of them damn hornets! My fault though for poking their home I guess...

Hornets nest is destroyed. A bit runout.

A gold camalot on a long sling before the forth bolt and a yellow TCU between the last two reduces the run-out. The crux may be getting to the first bolt so use caution or maybe stick-clip it.

Stan gives the key pro beta here: 2" piece after second clip, and I'd toss in a TCU just below that, too.

IMO...The first bolt is in a stupid position, and it really detracts from the route by artificially adding danger to just getting started. Why does this have to happen on Rap/Drilled routes?

Just bring a pile of TCUs to throw in as you see fit.

I would recommend bringing a #2 camalot to place behind the solid part of the flake several feet to the right of bolt 4 with a long runner. We didn't clip bolt 4 and went directly up the flake before clipping bolt 5. We placed a #0.4 camalot between the last two bolts.
