Warning Stainless-steel bolts are suspect near the coast. A rebolting effort is underway. MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Muscle through the same crux as Ice-9, then head left into some tricky and amazing vertical huecos. Then, conquer or fly. Good luck, mate.

Judge us for the artificial holds above the crux if that's what you're about. But first consider you're climbing something that other people risked their lives, and spent a considerable amount of time and that valuable money stuff, to provide for you--free of charge. We put the holds there so you can maintain a nice 12a experience. Or, you may eschew them and head left for six feet of inconsistent 13b if you prefer. Pride before the fall, and all that.

Location 

Mecca Wall - The Lounge; follows Pill Box, but continues vertically instead of heading left to Pill Box anchor.

Approach? 10 seconds.

Protection 

Eight bolts, five slings: titanium eyes glued w/ Hilti RE-500. The good stuff.
Anchors: slings and rings; lower or rappel.
