Start of pitch 2.

PLACING BOLTS IS ILLEGAL IN THE SUPERSTITION WILDERNESS! MORE INFO >>>

Description 

This route felt easier than its neighbor Rockabilly. The first 35 feet of the route is the same as Rockabilly but at the mini-roof angle right and follow cracks and pockets to first belay. There is one old bolt at the belay that can be easily backed up with a cam or nut. Pitch 2 heads up a decent face to base of slab that can not be seen from the belay. There are some loose blocks as you pull onto the slab/face as well as an old bolt you can clip. Either continue up the finishing moves of Rockabilly or angle right and head for the top.

Location 

The approach and start of the route is the same as Rockabilly. You can rappel the Lower East Wall--3 single rope rappels.

Protection 

Cams to #4, nuts and two old bolts and one old piton (on the first pitch).
