Description 

Climb incut horizontals to the second bolt where a reachy crux will be found - taller climbers will easily reach the security of a distant horizontal, while shorter climbers will need to make some extra moves and/or dyno past the crux. After clipping the third bolt traverse right in a horizontal and then work up an arete to the 4th bolt; this section is a little sporty and will grab your attention if pumped. The last section involves traversing up and right on a steep slab to join Buckets To Somewhere for it's last bolt and anchors.

Great climbing on this route that's a good warm-up for the more difficult lines on the wall. This climb, an old toprope problem, was originally led with no bolts, and then years later bolted turning this seldom done route into a popular sport route.


Location 

Locate this fun route on the left side of a smooth face just right of More Punk than Funk, a striking crack on the left side of the wall, and 6' left of Buckets to Somewhere.


Protection 

5 bolts, 2 bolt lower-off (shared with Buckets To Somewhere)
