Description 

Being taller than 5'9" helps you up this one. Amazing climbing up dishes on bullet rock. The bolts are spaced out a bit more than on some of the other routes, so be careful.


Location 

The first route on the uphill end of the Spaghetti Western Wall. Chains 3/4 of the way up.

Bolts are well placed and didn't seem unreasonably spaced out to me. It's true that you have to make a longish sequence of moves between bolts at the first crux, but the moves are hard enough that stopping to clip another bolt would be much more trouble than it's worth. Plus, the fall is clean (I've taken it more times than I care to relate).

Excellent climbing on great rock, one of my favorites at UEF.

Classic, .10d with the right beta.
