Lindsay Duca leading the classic corner of "Fun Ci...
As the name implies, this route is uber fun!!
Hug the twin cracks in the right-facing corner, then step up, and into the corner proper. Surmount a high pedestal rock-up move and continue in the sustained and curving layback crack. Clip the chain anchors from a good stance and lower off, or belay your second from the stance so you don't miss out on seeing a moose in the beaver pond off to your right!
About 400 feet to the right of "Mr. Clean" is a wall split by twin cracks in a slight depression.
Bring a variety of gear, including 3 or 4 larger pieces up to a #3.5 or #4 Camalot. Doubles are helpful in the medium sizes.
Nearing the top of Fun City.

Doubles in C4 #2 & #3 range can be helpful.

It's supposed to be "Fun CiTy". I don't see any way of alerting someone to change it! (?).
Superb climb. Top roped it but can definitely see leading it after a few more climbs.

Doubles in #2 and #3? The person leading it before me had that and put an extra set on my harness (making for triples) telling me I'd use them. To humour her, I kept them and yes, I used them. I'm just getting into the grade, so the types of moves this climb requires aren't familiar too me, so I stiched the thing.
That being said; what a great climb!

Way good. you can gear the start of the 5.10 crack on the right with smaller gear.Stemming between the two cracks is about the same grade. this is a good strategy to save the big stuff for the sustained upper crack.

A big piece or 2 was very comforting and strongly recommended.
