Description 

Start by climbing up to reach a shallow undercling flake and then a good horizontal seam to reach the first bolt. Use some poor holds to pull the lip of the overhang aiming for a jug at the 2nd bolt (crux). From here, make a deadpoint left, and clip the 3rd bolt. From here to the end, the climbing starts to ease up.

Note: Pay attention to where the belayer stands for the start. It is difficult to find a position so that you don't climb under the first stick clipped bolt without getting the rope twisted backward as you pull the lip.


Location 

Locate 2 large trees on the right side of the cliff. Superman starts directly in front of the trees. This climb is about 15 feet to the left of Andoullie, 5.11c.


Protection 

4 bolts, Anchors: 1 shut, 1 bolt with a quick link.
