A great route up the vertical face in the center of the Club Mex Wall. It is the most closely bolted line, located just left of the tufa of Conflict and just right of Fear of Flying. The route is great, but plenty of juggy rests leave it feeling soft for the grade.


A dozen draws or so.

Moving way left after the ledge gives it 5.12a (with long reaches to hit the clips). Straight up is about 5.12c.

This route is VERY sustained. I managed to get the onsight but felt it was one of the more consistent climbs here in Potrero. Great fun and thought provoking climbing all the way to the anchor. This climb definately keeps you on your toes. Climbs very similar to it's classic neighbor Fear of Flyin...
