If you can reach it without getting swallowed up by the ground, there's another route further down the wall. Large but friable holds improve in quality as the line reaches a steep, upper corner of sorts. Begins with a first bolt on the immediate left side of a corner.

I thought my dad bolted that not kevin, but I am not really sure. I think the pictured route is around 11+. Ask Mike, he know everything about this wall.

Are you sure it wasn't partially bolted before your dad bolted it?

Apparently a closed proj for Marty now

I bolted the route. However, the route to the right ...Highway to Heaven/ Hell was started by Kevin Cox in 2003. He put in the anchors and the first 2 bolts. He gave me permission to finish it.
