Description 

This route starts under a roof right in front of a tree on the West Face of Surprising Crag. There is one bolt getting to the roof, and one bolt on the roof. Turn the roof on jugs, then continue up the face passing three distinct hard sections with no hands rests in between. The climbing is great, and would get three stars if the route did not have all the no hands rests. Basically four boulder problems in a row. The last hard section can be skipped by going left and using the bolts on Space Goats. Sport Park gets a lot of bad press, but this is a great, all natural route.


Protection 

10 bolts and 2 bolt anchor.
