UKC

22m. The traversing slab that gives the easiest path through the steepness of The Bunker. Start on the far right to gain access to the slab then traverse hard left to where the fun begins. With the roof confining you from above and the footholds growing ever closer to the drop off beneath you, you're trapped in a precarious position. Technical footwork and funky climbing allow a series of committing moves on small undercuts to gain the corner beneath the final roof which is tackled head on by a difficult rock over. This route gives another level of exposure and tends to give great demonstrations of the 'Elvis legs'. Extender draws are a must for alleviating rope drag on the traverse and draws are best cleaned on second.

βeta: Perma-draws are getting pretty rusty! Gates all seem to work ok and tapes don't look too faded yet. Confused about the bolts beyond the anchor? Pretty rope-draggy to second, so maybe worth extending some of the perma0draws with your own. Felt about 6a+/b to the traverse, then maybe 6b/+ to the top? 6c seems a bit generous but that's just my opinion.
