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. This may have previously been known as "Wide Cracks" before the bolts went in.


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.

Yea you probably could have done without that lowest bolt or two, but then again someone who is just starting leading will be thankful they are there. A great new addition to the City. Thanks Dave!
