Blood Bath

Post by THB » Mon Sep 28, 2009 5:29 pm

So, I got on Blood Bath at Bob Marley for the first time this past weekend. It was a blast! This route had some of the coolest moves I've ever done on a rope. Can anyone recommend routes that have similar movement??

Thanks.

Brilliant Orange: Andrew are you suggesting to the last bolt??? Or have the anchors been moved down to where the last bolt was?? I thought it was a project to the anchors or 13a to the last bolt??

Gecko Circus: I can't believe that this thing climbs like Blood Bath... it looks slabby.

Bungle Direct: What is this route?? I'm not familiar with it...

The Galaxy Proj: Is this thing really worth checking out?? The comments on the online guide almost make it seem like it's not that great... And has this thing been bolted completely??

None of the routes suggested are like blood bath, they are all the opposite, and yes brilliant orange has been done to the original anchors.

Ray is right, the route to the left and right are about the only ones around like it.

I said 12d to the original anchors, but for some reason no one listens to me.

Kenny, in the route comments here you said 13a. Should I change it to 12d?

Lets See, 12a to the last bolt, and then an 11d it should be around 11d
