Susan starts the new route Slopy Seconds (5.11c/d)

Description 

Start to the right of Slope-oke moving past small blobs and large side pull cobbles toward a steep bulge. Make a move left at the 3rd bolt and then diagonal up right to the next clip. Continue above this with a long reach just past the 5th bolt. Cruxy moves follow heading left with some small pinches or a real long reach to some "football" side pulls. A tricky .11- section finishes over the bulge to the final 5.10 headwall and anchors. A good pumpy 5.11 route

Location 

Left center of the wall. The right route of the 2 red hanger routes

Protection 

9 bolts to chain anchors with lowering biners

This ones kinda cleaned up and the bad big stuff is knocked off but a helmet for the belayer would be a good idea! The main handholds are solid but some small "un-used" holds could still break off. Small footholds will probably continue to break off throughout the year. Also, I may add a few bolts as well to make the "questionable rock" less scary for 5.11 climbers. It's probably a 2 star route now but IF it cleans up it could be great - really fun movement!

I added a few bolts and changed some. The route is looking a lot cleaner but the small foot chips still come off on occasion if you don't know where the solid stuff is. Give it some time and it will clean up (a year or 2 like all the other stuff!!)
