Flirting with the Bosch Date Climbed: Jul 31, 2008
Little to close to his drill that day eh? Excellent route, both Walk of Ages and Flirting with Bosch. All crux moves well protected on both. Very good rock by our standards, textured, but not so sharp to skin you. I led the crux pitches on both of these routes and found them tame. The last pitch, 5.10a, on Walk of Ages was actually more sustained than either the 5.10c or 5.10b pitches. These two 4 pitch routes go really fast, take the guide book so you can do another one or two. We would of done quite a bit up there if not for the weather. The approach was less than an hour.
