Route Location


This is the second route on the wall if counting from the left. Afterburner starts on large jugs and trends slightly right up overhanging rock to a mediocre rest about halfway up. Make a few moves to go nearly horizontal. The crux move is a huge lunge or a dyno going over the lip of the roof, from a horizontal position to a vertical one. After sticking the crux, finish through the top on big holds and ledges.


about 10' right of Happy Hooker

No "huge lunge or dyno" required really. I remember getting a calf lock/toe cam using a calf on the corner of the roof and basically doing a situp on it, then bumping off an intermediate to a jug.
The rest of it is just a jug haul on buckets.

There is a full-on no hands rest halfway out the roof by hooking a leg over each of the two big flake-like features.
