Description 

This is the long route to the right of She's the Bosch, starting on the same little ledge but 40ft right of the start of 'Bosch'. It climbs up obvious bolts, passing first crux about 50 feet up, then romping through 5.10 terrain, passing a pin in an easy section, to the last headwall, where this route really gets good. This route is LONG! be aware that when lowering with a 70M rope you will definitely not be close to the ground. we left a biner on a bolt to get down. knot your rope ends! But definitely get on this route! It is a very nice addition to the area, and as good or better than She's the Bosch.

Location 

40ft right of She's the Bosch.

Protection 

lots of bolts, one pin 3/4 of the way up. bring a few long draws. 80 meter rope or some trickery.

A grand voyage of a climb...11d tech down low and a beautifully positioned pump up high...like 160ft up high. 2 60m ropes required to rappel. This route is wayyy longer than She's The Bosch. Glad to have these long routes:)

Bravo! to whoever put up this quality route at the City. Would have named it 'No Gal is the Bosch of Me', since it is a big boy's route, and just right of 'She's the Bosch'. Definitely need an 80m rope, with clips for 14 bolts and a piton (couple long runners help rope drag).

Rapping with an 80m requires 10ft of downclimbing. Use 2 60s if you want to reach the ground. The rappel is 155-160ft long, making the route even longer than that. I also got on it thinking that it is She's the Bosch. Technical crux is down low, redpoint crux is at the top. The patina edges are still friable. More traffic should clean it up.
