Kick in the Nuts
|954 page views|
This climb has a committing start and jugs, sidepulls, no hands rests, underclings, crimps... quality route. It seems longer than it is. blocky and overhung. At some point(just above the thin face section) you will se a bolt on either side of you, you want to clip the right one and continue above it. You must be prepared to get a KICK IN THE NUTS!!!!
originally 11b... I compare this climb to 'The Breeze' which has more difficult moves, but this route is longer. Its hard to call the same grade though, but it may be accurate.
Right of Scuzzlebut 12-
about 11 bolts, 3 anchors at the top
David Hein getting froggy.
John Hinrichsen veering right and potentially off-...

An amazing route with a bit of everything. Between bolts 3 and 4 I wandered far right. Where Kick in the Nuts encroaches on Scuzzlebutt I veered left; here clipping the right bolt was awkward and the left bolt resulted in terrible rope drag so I opted for neither. A couple of longer slings are handy to reduce drag.
