BETA PHOTO: "The Bitches Love Dayhiking"

Description 

"The Bitches Love Dayhiking." A short route with the business at the end. It starts out mellow on some blocky features, and climbs slightly right of the bolt line until the crux. Might be a little bit of a one move wonder. It isn't too much of a squeeze job, since the neighboring route climbs left of its bolt line. A bit technical with some cool rock, and has a thin and tricky finish!

Location 

One bolt line right of "What Does Bob Want?," which is the farthest left on the wall. The B.L.D. is easily located by the painted hangers and a chain draw anchor. There is also a name tag rock at the base, but we'll see how long that lasts.

Protection 

5 Bolts with painted light blue hangers, and a fixed steel sport anchor.

Way soft for the grade, unless you don't use the features directly to the right of the bolt line. I don't know how climbable it is if you don't though. Super well protected. One-move crux at the end.
