random climber on I love big jugs

Description 

Easy 5.6 climbing for the first three bolts leads to the 5.8 crux. There is not a crux move, it is 25 feet of sustained climbing. Great clipping holds for the next two bolts will get you to the anchors.

Location 

When looking at the crag this is the bolted line farthest to the left.

Protection 

5 bolts and ring anchors. I've heard of people setting a cam between the 3rd and 4th bolt, there is definite decking possibilities here. A red BD cam is recommended at the top, before the last bolt to prevent decking in case of a fall.

Another fun route that you can do without the bolts. Takes great gear!

I definitely recommend the cam if you have any chance of falling. There is a large ledge half way up, and if you fall before the bolt it might as well be a ground fall with some extra tumble.
