This route is the left-most line on the east Bug Springs wall, and shares the same start and first bolt as Rockin' America. The second bolt is high and to the left, after which an excellent layback crack can be well protected with small-medium cams. This route has its own chain anchor, but it is a little high off the ledge for average height folks. This route and neighbors are fun and worth doing.

This is a Traditional climb that has a few bolts. There is nothing "Sport" about it. I cleaned a "bail 'biner" off this route at the second bolt today. I assume that the climber that left it didn't have adequate trad gear to protect the climb. If you want it back, just let me know!
