Description 

Is it a crack climb? Is it a slabby smear-fest? Is it a pocket pulling parade? This fantastic route is all that and more making it the ultimate static experience.

If you like thought provoking, technical climbs that require gorilla strength, ballet dancer finesse and absolutely no dynamic moves whatsoever, then look no further. This climb is calling your name!

This climb is awesome! The rock is bulletproof, black as night, and in some places it gets smooth as a baby's butt. A very asthetic line. The technical nature of the climbing makes this route a difficult onsight to be proud of if you are not quite leading at the 5.11 grade yet. For those seeking harder grades this route is a perfect warm-up for the rest of the climbs on the wall. Do not bypass this climb! Get on it and git r' done!


Location 

Getting to the Fishbowl Wall is a bit of a hike. Getting to Static Experience is just a bit more of a hike. When you locate Carp and Bottom Feeder just keep heading to the left and down the hill.
Shimmy around a bend and up the hill until you see two, shiny bolt lines. Static Experience is the first climb (the climb on the right) that you will see on a black wall that appears to slope away from you. The climb to the left of Static Experience is a worthy 5.11 that will have you scratching your head wondering what to do next.


Protection 

Take eight quickdraws. Static Experience is not as pumpy as Carp, but it will get on you right at the second bolt. Make sure your belayer is paying attention since many a fine climber have been pitched off due to mistakes in technique rather than fatigue.
