Description 

This route is located directly uphill and right from the obvious flared chimney "Heel Toe". As the name suggests this route is a piece of dung/shit. The climbing is very stupid, especially since when you cross the gap to get onto the face the holds are fairly dirty and the climbing is JUST NOT FUN! ouch! The rating stays true if you do not stem off the chimney once you cross out onto the face, although this may seem more difficult than it looks, funky footwork. It would have been a much better line if the black streak straight up from the first bolt was bolted, this can be top roped and goes at mid 11, much more enjoyable than the route being described. If you go to Jurassic Park and want to end your day, or being your day on a bad note climb this route and see just how bad it is, believe me, IT'S BAD! This defines the "Bomb" for me on this website.


Protection 

Optional gear (1-2") before the first bolt on very easy ground (5.5) then 7 bolts to the anchors, beware as the anchors have no quicklinks or rap rings to descend from, watch your rope ! Not suggested to [rappel] from this anchor, continue on to the anchor just left of here to descend (60 m rope)


Location 

This route is located directly uphill and right from the obvious flared chimney "Heel Toe".

I guess I did not find it so bad. Maybe it had just cleaned up a little with traffic? Nothing to repeat, let alone write home about, but not worth bombing. I've done plenty of routes that are worse.
Maybe a little hard for 5.10a unless you stem out left at the crux to the other wall.

It has chains on it as of today.

Has chains at the top and is a really fun route. Don't let the description scare you away from it. Must have been dirty in its past, but traffic has cleaned it up well.

I climbed the 5.11 variation (as shown in the picture with the yellow markings) and found it enjoyable.
