Description 

Beautiful route! Lots of big reaches to good holds down low leads to a small roof. pull the roof and begin the right arching crack line. keep trending right on crimps and up to next roof. here you have an option to continue right and finish straight up to make the route 11a, or trend left on a different line of bolts for the 11d finish. No distiguisable crux on this route with good rests at each bolt.

Location 

The more beautiful neighbor to the right of Discombobulated (11a).

Protection 

10 bolts to bolted anchor.

Do this route! Awesome, varied movement on a beautiful piece of rock. Although it's a sport route, I found that it climbed a lot like a bolted trad route.

It starts with some impeccable face climbing for the first few bolts. I was able to reach some better holds at 5'11" than my girlfriend was at 5'5", which made getting to the first bolt a bit easier.

Solid crack climbers should cruise the dihedral in the middle. Judging by the chalk, it looks like it's possible (or at least attempted) by some on small crimps through that section too.

Make some tough moves getting into the next roof section. If you're not too pumped by the end, make a few last hard moves to the chains and soak in the awesome view from the top.

My new favorite sport pitch. Full value!
