Description 

This is the first line of bolts beginning off of the right side of the diagnonaling ramp where Easy Skankin', Movement, etc. start, and is the start of Philosophy. Move past a couple of bolts worth of easy climbing (don't slip) then shuffle right past a crux, then a harder crux, and two more bolts, on big holds and poor feet. Rest in a corner for as long as you want, then move straight up making some balancy moves and a toss for a big ledge that the route shares with The Anti-Phil. Shake out and move left out a cool juggy rail (steep) then head up beautiful brown rock as the route straightens out...a couple of hardish moves, a very good rest that is hard to leave, and then some difficult slappy fun on the final headwall on genius stone gets you to a three bolt anchor.

Amazing!


Protection 

60 meter rope and 12 quickdraws.

You're bored? It's a beautiful Saturday afternoon. I'm injured. What's your excuse?

Ahh. Me too. Talar fracture. Bouldering can really put a guy into a world of hurt. Get well soon.

Anyway, hope things are healing up (both of you poor bastards) and the "broom" is growing in nicely...
