Climb the 2 bolt slab and make the move on to the face. Climb is full on in two moves. Crimps, side pulls and underclings with a power crux at the top bulge.


First route on the far left hand side of Boy Scout Wall.

Great Route!

Certainly packs a punch after you pull onto the face. Fun moves!

Was seeping a little in early May but didn't really affect the climbing.

Glad you had fun. I've been waiting for someone else to rate or comment on this climb. We liked it a lot and wondered if we were complete idiots. What did you think of the last bolt location?

Hey Brad,

Thanks for bolting this line, I really enjoyed it! Was fun to figure out the face sequence in the middle and then gunning it to the chains at the end.

Last bolt seemed well placed to me! Think I whipped on to it once before I sent.

Hope to see you up at Bowman sometime. Seems like there is still tons to clean up and bolt. Though I don't know much about the process, I would love to learn. Let me know if you have any more bolting aspirations in the area and I would be happy to lend a hand if you need it.
