Julie passed the bulge on East Side Daze.


Make hard starting moves up a face. At a bush, by the second bolt, step right and climb up through a steep bulge. Once established on the slab above the bulge climb up trending right towards the anchors.

As the slab steepens another hard section is reached. Pass this and finish easily on very positive holds.


Middle of the wall to the right of the water chute.


8 bolts, 2 open shuts anchor

super fun climb. there is a feeling of not wanting to get cheese grated falling from the slabby section up high. 8-10ft between bolts.

Pretty much like Chase the Dragon and Chronic - the bottom is uninspiring, but the top is super fun pocket pulling.

Crux is reaching and clipping the first bolt (if climb up to it directly).

Lots of interesting climbing above which is not so much less difficult.
