Gettin' after the Love Handles, Skully in action.

The right-most, and most-varied of the 3 bolted routes in this spot. The crux is moving up and left below the obvious bush. Nice moves above lead to a steep finish.


Just right of "Muffin Top", about 130' left of "Aspen Leaf"


7 or 8 bolts to a chain anchor. We agonized putting bolts in the bottom but chose to "Pogue-ize" it for the benefit of the faint-hearted.

Have yet to climb these routes, but love the fact that you used "pogue-ize" to explain the bolting. Any "city climber" will understand. And I will thank you for not "goodwin-ing" the route ;)

This climb is a lot of fun. I thought it was closer to 5.9, it is definatly harder than muffin top.
