Bolted. Kinda old bolts, I don't trust them. Better to lead Quaker Oats to the right and then TR

Description:

Tricky below and above the first bolt. Begin at cliff's base left of a large boulder. Delicately climb (5.8) for 15' to the first bolt. Continue up left (5.8) above the bolt with groundfall potential below the second bolt. Above, angle right to another bolt and motor up the easier slab to the eyebolt belay, or angle left to the top bolt of Ego Trip and up. 3 bolts. SM>>> THIS ROUTE ALREADY EXISTS A FEW ROUTES ABOVE. THE NAME OF THE ROUTE IS "I SINKSO" The name was edited incorrectly in Phoenix Rock II and the error was propagated by Green when he copied info from PR2 for his book. For the second pitch of all of these climbs there is only one belay bolt, and it cannot be rappeled of of, i put some webbing on it to rappel off of but didnt have any rings at the time, if someone has any it would be nice if someone put some there, or the nexttime i go i will put some on it. The second pitch is gay anyway, dont waste your time

4 out of 5 stars MY SECOND SLAB CLIMB

Much better to just top rope from Quaker Oats. Found a scorpion in the only really positive spot on the whole climb though. Interesting. Fun route.

Crux is at the broken flake. Just trust your feet on little flake and go.
