Climb up nice edges and sloping huecoes to a right trending seam/crack. Pull over a small lip (crux) and climb varnish crimps to chains.
The route between Nightmare on Crude Street and The Heavy Hitter.
6 bolts and chain anchors.

I bolted this around the same time as the other two routes I put up in the corridor. Jerry named it "Punch Drunk" in the new guide for some reason. I originally rated this 11a, not the route to the right (which I rated 10c). I guess people have stated that the line now seems a bit harder due to a few broken holds. I hope it is enjoyable and people that climb on it have fun, regardless of the grade. Thanks!

mike- the exit up top is tough, way harder than other .11a's in the corridor, i finally got it today after several attempts.
i'm betting it'll get harder over time, though, as the key foot for the sequence up top is soft and may not survive very many sends.

Does this route have a permanent biner on the 3rd bolt or is that another route? Thanks.

There are two cruxes pulling over two lips, the first one is 11a ish the second one gets a bit harder as you have to pull on some crimps to top out. Super fun holds at the bottom.
