Description 

You will understand why this is called Fancy Dancer once you attempt the balancy, high stepping moves. Follow the thin crack to the right of Number 6 a.k.a. The Bulge. The crack ends about half way up the face, you can either lower off or finish on the top of Number 6 a.k.a. The Bulge.

  • RCM&W #54, p.166.


Location 

This route is located immediately to the right of Number 6 a.k.a. The Bulge on the same face and lead up to the middle section of Blue Moon.


Protection 

Nuts and small cams on lead. Standard top rope set up, often TRed on the same anchors as Number 6 a.k.a. The Bulge.

A thought inducing route. Little trickier for short climbers. Over all VERY FUN!
