This is a deceiving climb that looks like a slab but overhangs.


Eight bolts to the anchor.


Per Kevin Neilson: It's right of Where the Wild Things Are and left of Stocking Stuffer.

More like .10d.

Hi Mike,
No argument from me here. Maybe even 11a unless you avoid the crux.

This route has the weirdest optical illusion. From the ground, it looks like a 85* slab, but it actually overhangs about 3 feet in 40.

This route is at almost at the far right end of The Dungeon. It's right of "Where the Wild Things Are" and left of "Stocking Stuffer". It is a bit overbolted and so covered in lichen that it looks as if it has never been climbed since the FA. It is worth doing, though, and has a challenging crux. The move right off the ground can be a little challenging.

Felt soft to me for a .10d. This, plus a ton of bolts, would make this a good climb for someone looking to lead their first 10+.
