This route starts out climbing a right leaning crack (crux) and continues through some large huecos and ledges. In the Handren guidebook, this route is referred to as "Need to Rest," but Mike's original name was Idiot Parade.
This is the last route on the right side of the lower corridor, if you enter from the bottom. It is located just before the dividing boulders.
Several bolts up to new chains.

Great route but keep moving as it can be a pumpy little thing! Once you make it to the large obvious hueco you should be home free!

I really enjoyed the moves on this route! We had no idea what it was but the big hueco looked appealing so we had to give 'er a go. The upper edges looked like they could be slopers but are quite positive. This is nice because it feels steep! The knee bar in the hueco is cool.

Good Eye Mr. Moore! This is perhaps the best 5.10 in the Black Corridor...IMHO. This route is surprisingly pumpy for such a short climb....especially since it has a no-hands rest in the hueco.

If you can make it to the hueco your set. the holds after are surprisingly good but that's hard to tell by looking from below. Such a fun route!

Great route... make sure your feet are set and GO BIG! Great holds
higher up for those power moves, save your strength!

Deceptively pumpy but easily one of the best routes in the Corridor (like others have said). The kneebar (or double kneebar) makes for a great no-hands rest experience for the intermediate climber

Great climb. Pumpy, but thanks to the knee bar you can get a perfect rest...

Ignore your gut reaction to follow the crack past the second bolt. traverse out right to large hueco, take a breath, and sprint on up.

Super cool holds and some interesting moves to the top get you to the top.
