Description 

Start below the initial overhanging wall. Clip first bolt and stem/face up and slightly right, then up to some good incuts and a side pull with the left hand to clip the third bolt. Work a bit to the left and up into a lower angle area. Pretty much straight up the very steep upper wall from there, the holds becoming very positive before the anchor. The crux is the initial overhanging wall and getting past the third bolt, though the upper wall is probably 10a.

Location 

The next route left of West of Venus, on the left side of the Sex God Wall, right end of Fairfield East. Look for bolts on the initial overhanging wall above an undercling.

Protection 

5 bolts and anchor.

We did Geronimo a couple of days ago and a large block came off sometime this summer just right of the top of the route, fairly sizable. A nice bit of wreckage at the base is humbling. It didn't impact the route and the key holds to do the final moves to the anchor are still solid and intact.

The piece glanced off the hanger on the third bolt, however, and bent it over slightly. It is still easily clippable. I yarded on it hard lowering off and the bolt itself is solid and there are no cracks or nasties on the hanger so I believe it is still okay. I may go up someday and replace all the bolts anyway as they are Rawl 3-piece and have been there a while.

I replaced all the bolts on Geronimo last weekend with SS units. Also cleaned away the unnerving flake that was hanging above the anchor. It was barely on there. Phew.
