Follow the first 3-4 bolts on Homo Erectus, then move to the bolt line several meters to the right. Follow this line to chain anchors.


six routes left of glob job. the easy looking one.


7 or so bolts bring a few slings.

As of 05 June 2017, there was a loose flake on this route that could present a danger to the belayer below. Climb with caution.

I tried this route but as soon as it leaves right from homo erectus I didn't see any bolts. There were a few empty bolt holes where the guide book said they'd be, just a heads up. I ran it out hoping it was only 1 bolt but I had to traverse left back to homo erectus after the second empty bolt hole I found. I was there on 3/28/14.

When I was there on 10/1/15 this variation route had been re-bolted. Climb on!

When you make the move to the right it's pretty runout, maybe 30-feet. But it's an easy section. Mad rope drag.

If you keep climbing past the anchors on Hurly-Burly you can finish on this route. Not run out and no major drag. It's a much more natural line this way.
