Final sequence at last bolt

Description 

Walks a fine line of being a squeeze, but with unique, independent and high quality climbing, the Barborits is well worth doing.

Get a mediocre rest after the first crux of the BRIK and traverse right on small edges to the first bolt of the Barborist. Crank the fun, sequential and hard crux that culminates with a big toss to a jug. Continue on relatively moderate climbing to the steep pumpy upper crux (mid 12) with powerful side pulls and desperate last moves. Mantle ledge and clip a shared anchor with The Arborist.

Location 

The route begins with the first 4 bolts (the lower crux) of The BRIK and goes hard right where the BRIK trends left. Climb past 5 more bolts to a shared anchor with The Arborist.

Protection 

Quick draws, anchors with lower off biners.

A shoulder length draw on the BRIK's 4th bolt (painted red) helps reduce drag.
