Description 

This climb starts with some fun easy pulling on nice edges and then surmounts a diabolical roof/dihedral and if you're wondering if you have to grab those incredibly tiny holds out right then you're spot on! Very thin crux to a not too bad ending. Very nice climb if you're into crimpy, technical, steep sport climbs.

Location 

To the left of Atrocious or the 2nd route from the right when you first arrive at The Adjective.

Protection 

A bunch of quickdraws.

I bolted this with Ladell "Spanky" George over 14 years ago. He wanted to learn how to bolt so we picked out this line and went to work. After bolting it we were hanging out at the old Rock Garden climbing gym and a rather large lady rode by on a pink bicyle that was made for a small child. Ladell figured this climb was about as hard to execute as it was for that lady to ride the bike she was on. Ladell and I worked the climb for one day, but then he went on a Mormon mission and didn't return to climbing.

A friend and I left a carabiner of shame at the roof/dihedral bolt for about two months. We went back last week and got it back =).

@ Andy Knight: Really?? That's all you can come up with? Exactly why I left climbing and did something far more challenging.

@ Darren: What's up ole buddy? Wish I could have finished the route with ya! Hopefully, you where the one that got the first accent!..???

What did you do that was far more challenging? Abstinence, marriage, or child rearing?

So you left climbing cause you couldn't come up with good route names?
Bolts not Babtisms is Classic.
