Description 

Scramble up the easy ramp (5.5, optional gear) for 30 feet to get to the first bolt. Tricky moves past the third bolt lead to an easy middle section and a final crux getting to the anchor.

Location 

Located on the far right side of the Bighorn Wall. The start is just right of the bolted slab route, Uncle Bad Touch.

Lower off mussy hook anchor with a 70m rope.

Protection 

8 Bolts, Optional gear to 3"

Fixed anchor at the top.

Hey Todd, nice rock on this route. I did this on Monday after you finished it. Nice climbing, we felt it was maybe 5.9, with the crux being the last few moves. Thanks.

Thanks for the feedback, I'm always curious to know how things feel to other people. I try to be a little generous with ratings, since I typically have the moves pretty dialed from sussing out the line on TR, and I don't want to sandbag anyone for the onsight. Glad you enjoyed it.
