BETA PHOTO: Get the Cam

Private Property - Access Sensitive MORE INFO >>>


Nice short route with a small overhang.


Route is located between the Iceberg Area and the White Wall. If you walk from the Iceberg Area to the White Wall it's the first route with bolted anchors


Two bolted anchors on top. You need about 3-4 cams

Due to the fact that there are bolted anchors the route must have a name. If anybody knows the name please post it. Get the cam is just the temporary name I chose.

Hey John! Havent done it myself, but pretty much everything at Bozoo is short enough that a single rack will more than suffice.
