Climb the traverse line left of Dynamic Duel to a tricky crux at the end. The end is getting two hands on the obvious jug. After the first (easy) section of caramelized, rat droppings, this route is really good, like an easy version of Desdichado.

This climb follows the obvious traverse line on the left end of the long overhang.


7 bolts/anchor.

When giving the details, please give info that will get one to the climb without a guidebook in hand. Dynamic Duel is referenced. Where is that?

This route is much better than the first twenty feet look_and it is possible to avoid the brown stuff. It's left of the Flying Beast not Dynamic Duel. You get to the finishing jug by moving down and left, not by going straight up to the area of the anchors.
