A short line with a couple of powerful moves, some small holds, some big holds, a difficult clip, sharp rock, and a bit of trickery. Almost a one-move wonder, but still worth doing.

Don’t blow the second clip (which isn’t the difficult one).


Right at the right edge of the Bad Bananas “cave”. If counting from the right, it is the 3rd line from the right, ignoring Oscar the Grouch which is quite a bit farther right.


5 bolts, chain anchors.

This is a fine route. The first 4 bolts is the crux. The feet are definitely the trickiest part, trust em and move is a good thot. The rest has some big holds with big moves with a scratchy sloper over the 4th bolt. I recommend hanging a long draw on the fourth to make that clip a bit easier. Hang in there and enjoy the sharp rock above. Ouch.
