A great intro to the climbing at Potrero John. Interesting face climbing that always feels secure (and well-protected). Great rock by area standards.
There is a clear crux encounter at the third bolt. Despite the ratings in the Edwards guide, this route feels one solid grade harder than Miccis. Perhaps holds have weathered.
This route can be used to access the top anchors of other routes. After completing Zyzzxx, run the rope through the anchor, lead across to the right on a decent ledge, clip into the anchor on another route, and pull your rope.
5 bolts to anchor.

The correct name for this route is Migrating Coconuts thanks to Tom's love for Monty Python. It indeed was bolted by Tom and Seth Campbell.

I've always liked this route. Great movement all the way up.
