A fun line, with hidden qualities from the ground eye view. The fun, slightly dirty start below the roof warms you up, the roof delivers a punch, but the real fight comes between the roof and the chains. Interesting movement throughout.


Located on the left side of the panel of rock to the left of Gastoned Again. Just to the left of Natty Dread (11b) and to the right of Shorty Bob (10c).


12 bolts to anchors.

Dirty, chossy, and caked in mud. The upper half, however, is quite good and redeems this from "bomb" status.

I thought this was a very enjoyable climb. Some of the holds down low have a little sand, but they are big and you can motor right past them to the roof.
The roof is a fun little boulder problem with good hands and feet. Just be careful clipping the bolt at the lip, you really don't want to blow that clip, since a few small ledges below could be nasty to your foot and ankle.
The 'slab' above the roof is thin in spots, but has no shut-down moves to speak of.
I think there are a few too many rest scattered about to deserve an 11+ rating.

Going to the anchors shut be down on my first burn. What a heartbreaker! My only concern on this route is, "Where's the damn anchor clipping holds?!?" I felt smooth on this thing till I got caught up in some froggy position with good, but spread out feet and terrible holds to clip the chains. Got it on my second burn, but I almost pitched again trying to clip the anchors. This is another awesome route at The Gym.
