Description 

It's hard to imagine a more fun sport climb in the 5.10 grade, hence it's a classic. The first few moves are the crux, but the rest of the route is long, steep and involves physical pulls between good, sometimes excellent, holds.


Location 

This route is roughly in the middle of the crag and starts just left of the little hand-line-assisted scramble up to the terrace on the right side of the crag. The topo linked on the area page isn't quite accurate on the location of the hand-line.


Protection 

7 or 8 draws plus a two bolt anchor. There aren't rap rings or chains on this one, but you can traverse over to the route to the right (Shuffle-Board Demon) which does have rap rings.

Awesome route! Super coarse if you are used to polished routes in Squamish. Great sustained climbing on beautiful edges. Almost a full 30m.
