Description 

Straight up the black water stain on the right end of the wall. Pull a mind blowing undercling with no feet to a long reach over the small roof to a crimper then up milder ground to a fun mid 10ish move in the middle then another just below chain anchors.


Location 

Between Zagnut and Lemonhead up the black water stain. At the far right end of the wall, the last route on the left side of the big bush that heads up to the deep upside down "V" notch roof.

It might take a day or two to dry out after any rain. There's a big patch of grassy moss stuff way up top that drains down the black water stain but if it's dry, the black area isn't slick at all. It was actively dripping/running yesterday when the rest of the wall was bone dry.

Thanks Geir! The fourth bolt has been moved left about a foot to accommodate the variation that some folks are taking to pull the roof. Apparently I'm the only weirdo that climbs it straight on. ;) The new bolt location basically keeps the climber from having to pull the roof [crux] again if he/she blows the move after the roof to get to the bolt. Now you can clip from the "rest" after the roof regardless of how you sequence it out. Thanks for the input Mike, Tim and Tony!

Great climb Daryl -- best of the routes I did during our week in the Sweet/Trad Rocks area: well-bolted, good rock, thuggish crux with great position followed by two tricky and attention-getting sections to the chains. I also really liked Everlasting Gobstopper and Hot Tamale, but this one is the gem at Sweet Rock -- keep it up DA. Found it to be completely dry (on 4/13) a few days after a reportedly good rain storm.
