Route Summary | Ascent Notes (6)
5 bolts plus 2 chain anchors
Route is located immediately left of Ant Encounters.
For a face climb, this route has a variety of holds and features. Climb crimps, pockets, and jugs to a smooth face under a rounded ledge below the anchors. Rating is approximate until a consensus is established.
Since this is a new climb, belayer beware as each hold gets tested.
Name is derived from the feeling I had about the giant rotten flake/ledge just left of bolt #3 until I sent it down with a small crowbar. Someone can build a nice belay bench at the base now.
12APR2011: Updated to 5.10c after hearing some consensus on the matter and seeing solid 5.10 climbers seriously struggle.

Sweet, tricky, and intimidating lead even with the well spaced bolts. Nice mix of holds. Stick clip. Two others thought 10c. You get (beta spoiler) a no hands rest on the ledge, but the bouldery start felt close to 10c, then add moves and non-easy clipping...might add to 10c.
