Buck on his first, prebolt ascent of Caveman

Description 

Line starts on a lower slab flake then follows a line of bolts between the two caves on the Primal Wall. Well protected and a great warmup route. Isolated lower band of chert requires some continued cleaning. Find a belay stance that keeps the belayer well off to the side. This is still a new route. Besides being the only route between the two caves, this line can be identified by the large spear point like, left facing flake that provides a ledge for clipping the last bolt. Two bolt anchor with chains is another three meters above.

Location 

10 meters right of the sport route Primal, between the two caves on the Primal Wall. A set of quick clip chains provide for a quick and easy lower.

Protection 

Quick draws
