This slabby rig at the top of the talus slope was a victim(?) of retrobolting. Unfortunately the bolts and line wander back and forth so much, you're liable to feel the rope drag unless you use long runners. Regardless, the climbing is fun and involves slab moves between good stances. Might feel a bit sporty (especially to the first bolt) if 5.8 is your limit.


5 bolts to mussy hooks

A good route involving route finding skills and not just a jug pull.

Very wandering - I've led it and TR'd it ... good description - and a good test for route reading!

Definitely wanders. I down climbed a bit and unclipped the first bolt after I got the second in, and the rope drag wasn't too terrible. Also, don't be confused by the stray bolt that leads up and slightly right from the first one.
