Climbs the obvious black streak on top of the Shipwreck Wall. Got it's name when a bolt pulled on a local Corvallis woman on an early ascent.

4 out of 5 stars Bolt from the blue

Sweet, long pitch. 11a section is tricky till you figure it out. The top is sick with a surprisingly thin crux. Pumpy and good

5 out of 5 stars Much better than expected!!

One of the best on the wall in my opinion. Puzzle through the 11A start, sit on a ledge and enjoy the scenery, and then finish out the 100+ feet of awesome climbing.

4 out of 5 stars choss-tastic!

Definitely worth doing. Climbs better than it looks, and is a good choice if you want to climb something in the shade away from the crowds.
