Climb juggy horizontals, passing a distinct crux near the second bolt, and then mantle onto a ledge with the third bolt. Higher, climb over a small roof and finish up a short headwall to anchors at the lip of the wall.

Decent climbing on this route although it lacks the sustained nature of the higher quality routes. The poorly located 2nd bolt detracts somewhat from the overall experience.

Originally a TR problem this was later lead without any bolts (finishing up Sun Spot) and later still bolted and made a sport climb. Most recently a two bolt direct finish was added to make this route totally independent of Sun Spot.


This is the 2nd route from the left on the Hungover Wall and starts just right of a large pine tree.


5 bolts, 2 bolt lower-off

Be careful when clipping the 3rd bolt, there is a potential ground fall if your belayer isn't paying attention.
