Perin Blanchard in the quintessential Simple Simon...
Overhanging roof with great jugs, although 1 or 2 key holds are hidden. Some reachy moves may be hard for short people. The entire route is overhung with barely any weight on your feet until the anchors. Climb it fast as you get pumped out of your mind hanging there looking for the next moves.
Fun strong route.
Great photo op with the valley & lake in the background
In the middle of the overhanging wall section. Look at the beta photo. Starts at the chalk in the bottom middle and then goes up the jugs on the left side of the photo
5 bolts and chain anchors. All the bolts are clipped from solid jugs.

Lovin' the steepness
Steep but fun route

This was the first bolted climb at The Superbowl and at the time was one of the steepest climbs in Utah for .11b. A must-do for anyone who climbs in Rock Canyon at this grade and a great route to see where your power and technique are at on overhanging climbs.

I think that this was one of the most fun things i've ever done. It kicked our whole group's butt, but after a lot of effort I made it to the top.
The holds are great but the slope is relentless. There are some good feet in key spots, finding those gave me spots to clip from. To me, the route was mostly about not being intimidated by the slope (easily the steepest outdoor thing i've ever climbed) and committing to some of the ultra-bold moves to big but distant holds. The climb got a lot easier after the 4th bolt too. I'd highly recommend this one.

Hands down the best overhanging route at this grade. It doesn't take much effort to find the holds as they are completely caked in chalk. Huge jugs, great protection, and technical moves keeping your feet on make for a great climb.
