Bolted route just right of Red Snapper. Used to be 1 bolt to discontinued cracks at R rating and is now protected with 3 additional bolts taking the R rating away. Fun climb on good rock with an interesting top out, puts you in some clever positions. Well worth doing after/before Red Snapper.


4 bolts, Bolt anchor at top.

Noticably easier than Physical Graffti and WHAtCG, more on a par with Humerous, 2 of 5.
