This is the line that starts to the right of the Bob routes, just under a large flake. There are now 4 bolts. It was originally climbed with three but an additional was added for safety. Start on a ramp that leads up to the base of a drill hole. The first bolt can be clipped from the ramp. Continue past the bolt a short distance and climb up to a stance at the base of the drill hole. Move back left above the bolt, using a clean sloper for a foot hold and clip the second bolt. Step further left to another sloper in the dark rock and up to the third bolt. Move back right and follow the right edge of the flake up towards the fourth bolt. This section has several large holds but can be strenuous. Be aware of your rope as it may catch under the flake after the third bolt. Continue up to the large ledge on minimal holds and head towards the belay rings. Sport or top-rope. It is possible to place additional pro at the flake. Those used to bolts every few feet may feel it is runout from the third to fourth bolts.

Descent Options:

Lower, rappel, or walk off.
