Description 

This route, while fun, is mostly a boulder problem in a cool setting. The rock really isn't all that bad. If you're up for the 5.12s in the area, this one probably shouldn't be missed since it is a small commitment time-wise. All you have to do is work a few moves close to the ground. Pull the lip and you are essentially done. Then, wander up some 5.8 to the anchors.

The protection is good and the bolts are easy to clip. This should see a lot more traffic, given how easy it is to play around on. I'm surprised it took me 10 years or so to finally give it a go.


Location 

This is the first sport route on you're left that you will come to once the ramp levels out and becomes asbury park. Locate the the three bolts that pull the scooped-out overhang low to the ground and just above the fixed cable. Should be route #5 in Mike's Asbury Park overview.
