Awesome line! Step up and and fire the crux bouldery start. Involves precision and control through the first three clips. Beta intensive. Shake on the jugs and cruise to the chains.

This line used to be shorter with an extension called Rosy Pussytoes that climbed four more bolts up the beautiful pockety headwall to the top of the steep part of the cliff. Most people, unable to do this cryptic sequence of pockets, opted to use the crack to the right which is more like 5.10 not 5.13. The bolts were moved over right to accommodate the 'new' finish and 'Rosy' was dropped from the name.


Climbs the orange streak between Doomsday and Porcelain.


12 bolts, 2 BA

On the grade: The lower crux was on par but a tad easier than the crux on Twitch in Clear Creek. Obviously the line is more continuous above the initial crux than Twitch, thus I felt the line was solid at 12d.
