Pull the low crux bulge - a great boulder problem on small edges and knobs - and clip the second bolt. Continue on with sustained, technical crimping to a final desperate move near the top. A short, but totally classic route on bullet rock.


Walking right from Mall Wall and Way Gone, this is the last bolt line before the Oven starts to turn mega-steep. Skirts the edge of a roof/bulge.


4 bolts to Mussy Hooks. It would be wise to stick clip the first bolt or have a spot, use good judgment.

Cool route.. Thin and delicate to start, then bouldery and powerful, then a sloper finish. Agree on the stick clip, if only because clipping off that tiny crimp HURTS. ow
