Tom Donnelly about to enter the crux of Lucky Cuss...
This route climbs the steep and somewhat improbable face between Lady Luck (5.9) and The Papper (5.10c) on the far left side of the Claimjumper Wall.
Lieback, jam, stem and undercling your way in a left-trending line past several bolts to a horizontal crack and then head up and right on devious moves to a safe but thrilling finish. Orignally done without the first bolt which made it a little more sporty.
5 bolts, chain anchors

Like the other routes on this left end of the crag, the rock is not so good and the lines are either squeezed or forced. Moving even a couple feet out of the bolt line will change the route dramatically. Staying in the bolt line gave a very unnatural feel to this route..... I suggest following the natural holds and just travel a bit on the wall.

I agree - the holds and the bolts don't seem to line up.

The bolts and the climb definately don't seem to jive but I thought the climbing was real fun - lots of interesting moves. This one's worth a go.
