Start on Nitrous Oxide, climb to the fourth bolt and then go right at the jug rail and finish on Speed Trap. This is longer than Speed Trap and therefore is a little bit harder.


7 Bolts and anchors.

Probably not really any harder than Speed Trap, but let’s at least call it a soft 12c because of the additional boulder problem at the bottom (particularly if one doesn’t cheat and step off line at Speed Trap’s start). And yeah, it’ll be a cheap ego boost. In any event, the bottom part adds around 15 feet of difficult climbing and makes this wall actually worth seeking out, although there is somewhat of a grease factor and the setting is a bit urban. Ignore the cold shut at top (added well after Speed Trap's FA) and pull to the chains.
