Description 

A burly offwidth in Hong Kong? This route fits the bill, I'm currently seeping plasma out of most of my limbs. An awkward start turns into armbarring with a pretty solid kneebar and smears for ratcheting up. Quite dirty when I lead it, but it felt much nicer on TR after I used my body as a brush.

Location 

Up above the nose like formation there is a corridor which leads to Gully Bully, this route is at the mouth of this corridor. Easily recognized due to its continuous 5-6 inch wideness.

Protection 

I placed a one, a three, a five, then walked a 6 for the rest. There are a few bolts on top without hangers, next time I am up there I will bring some hangers. Otherwise there are options for a gear anchor, anywhere from .75 to 2 will do ya for the anchor.
