"The 3 Bs" is the leftmost line on Punk Rock as you face the rock. It starts up an overhang almost right off the ground, and heads left up the arete after pulling the overhang. The route has two bolts with two fixe ring anchors at the top.


2 QDs plus slings for the anchors.

I put up this route in 2003 with the help of Anita Shore and Deanne Yartz. It's the left-most route as you face Punk Rock. The route heads up slightly right over an overhang right off the ground then back left up the arete passing a bolt before arriving at the two Fixe ring anchors. Worth doing, I guess (at least the two others who helped put it up thought so). Seemed like a good line at the time. I named it "the 3 Bs". Enjoy.

Fun route. Try a butt start for more length, interest and pump. I thought it worth more than one star.

Excellent little route, lots of start choices. I agree more than a star.
