This is a terrific 7 bolt extension to Groundwork that skirts the awesome and huge heart shaped cobble. It is marred only by some odd bolting, for example, the only purpose of the first bolt in the cobble seems to be to provide rope drag -- skip it, its easy climbing to the next bolt, and use long draws or extensions on the first 4-5 bolts. From a hands off rest next to the huge cobble launch into a short, sequential boulder problem on bullet rock to the chains. Excellent addition to the crag.


From the chains atop Groundwork follow a line of bolts to and through the heart.

This is a cool extension, but still quite loose up top. Both times I went up it I knocked off baseball size rocks. I don't think it warrants a higher grade than either Ground Works or Afterglow (depending on which route you choose to climb as the start), seeing as there is a big no hands rest at the cobble.

Put a long draw on the first bolt up from the 11c. Skip the next bolt. Put a long draw on the bolt in the Almighty cobble. Put a long draw on the next bolt in the cobble. Unclip the first draw in the cobble. That will help with the rope drag. You'll figure it out. Massive rest before you go up thru the overhanging cruxiness.
