Making a highstep on Ankles Away.
This is a fun and challenging sport climb; the crux is between the third and fourth bolts. Don't miss Ankles Away when you're at Fosters!
An interesting bit of trivia on the name of the route: According to Arno Ilgner, Ankles Away got its name from an incident on Dihedral, a trad line just to the left. When the leader leaned back on his gear, the piece pulled and the rest zippered; the resulting fall broke both his ankles.
Dihedrals section, 5' left of Twist and Shout.
Six bolts, ring anchors.

I've heard the names were thought up when a climber tried to solo one of them and fell. It explains Narcissism, Ankels Away, and Twist and Shout pretty well I think.
