Description 

Handicapable - someone who is crippled or handicapped but takes offense at those terms and prefers "handicapable."

It has bouldery and gymnastic moves through a steep shield of rock. Great climbing, I just wish it was longer!

Location 

It is the furthest left route at the Armory, just left of Off the Couch.

Protection 

5 bolts.

Tried this one out today, hot off the presses! Good route. The movement isn't straightforward, and I thought the boulder problem was fun - cool heel hook!

Kind of a bad-ass, little route. Nice work, Dave!

Super fun considering the shortness - no heel hook for me, though.

I too wish this were longer; however, had it been, I may not have sent! Essentially a 15 foot boulder problem guards the anchors, easy going before and after. A great deal of fun!
