Setting up rappel at top of strongman.

Description 

The start of the route is a very interesting thin crux which is followed by climbing that becomes gradually easier and finishes on jugs at the top.


Location 

Located to the right of a black dihedral (Dancing Bears) and to the left of The Greatest Show on Earth. The North Forty trails comes close to an overhanging, undercut wall (Big Top is on that wall). Follow the cliff uphill from the "Big Top Wall" until the base of the cliff starts going downhill again.


Protection 

Six bolts to a two bolt anchor.

One of the key holds between the first and second bolts has a giant X on it indicating not to use it. I'm probably not strong enough to make the move without using the hold or I just wasn't able to figure out the sequence without using the marked hold.
