Description 

A little ways past Cruising Lane and RIte of Passage is a broad, tall well featured slab. This is the left of the two bolted routes. The crux is going for the anchors and requires jedi mind control and precision footwork. The route up to the crux is pretty casual at 5.7-8 or so. A must do if you're in the area. One of the best 5.10a sport routes in the RRG.

Location 

Middle of Funk Rock City.

Protection 

Lots of bolts. 60m rope is required and a stick clip is a good idea.

I thought the start was great! Really cool movement all the way up. I thought this was harder than funkadelic, with a spicer finish to the chains.
