Description:

steep, short boulder problem for the first 3 bolts slab to the anchor. This is open to all who want to give it a go. I have tried it, some strong kids have been on it but it still has no 1st ascent. An angry bat once inhabited this route but he has moved on to a quieter cliff side

Descent Options:

lower off

4 out of 5 stars Sporty

Short bouldery climb. 4 bolts with a big gap between the second and third. Hard to work on top rope and sport. A delicate start leads into a good rest with underclings, an abrupt bulge makes for an abrupt crux as you have to dyno out left and around the corner to a decent hold, hidden feet forced me to throw feet out left somewhat into space, power through the next two or three moves to the jug to clip. slightly balancy face up top, gracious amounts of crimps however i only needed to use 3 holds before i could nearly clip the chains. Great route and very fun, watch the falls from the second, i used a crash pad to cover the boulder below after coming in hot a few to many times. It may be safer to raise the second bolt, however i somewhat enjoyed the boldness of the route and wanted to show it could be done safely as is.
I do not enjoy rating these short bouldery routes! I almost expect them to feel harder than they are for me. Eager for confirmation!
