Description:

Easy slab for the first 15 feet, Then climb a prominent overhanging bulge with an obvious honeycomb-like limestone deposit. Head left from the honeycome to the obvious hueco to gain a bike-handle rest and clipping stance for the permadraw. Follow the crack right into a slopey layback, and up about 5 feet to connect with a crack running left. Follow it, and head onto the now-slabby face to gain a no hands rest and good clipping stance for the final bolt. Head directly up 6 feet for the top anchors, or a victorious and clean top out.

Descent Options:

Repel.

3 out of 5 stars very consistent climb

this was a fun climb, consistent 10c moves for 4-5 bolts.... I skipped the recommended lieback and climbed on the jugs was real easy basically skipped everyones crux. I am told the consensus on this climb is 5.10d I would rate if 5.10c/d one of the more sustained climbs i'v climbed at the med wall, I will definitely redo

5 out of 5 stars Battle of the Bulge..

My personal favorite at Medicine Wall, this route is consistant and continuous. It's not typical of the normal boulder/ledge/boulder/ledge climbing in the area. Great training for different styles including Overhang, laybacks, cracks, and slab, all in about 45 to 50 feet. Great rock quality and fall out is clean.
