One more of Rich on Third Degree in his sandal's.

Description 

Step over a small gap and then trend left up steep face, like most routes at Malibu this route is littered with huecos and good holds

Location 

On the opposite side of the boulder from Letterbox/Nipple Denial Syndrome, first route to the right of the arete. This is now the second route from the left (out of 4 on the face now). The Arete has been bolted.

Protection 

4 bolts anchor

This is now the second route from the left (out of 4 on the face now). The Arete has been bolted with a 10d-ish looking route.

I tried to lead this climb a few weeks back, got stuck and traversed over to the route to the right to descend. The next time I tope roped it cleanly, and than last week I lead it no problem. A very fun climb with a few fun tricks to figure out.

There was a plastic figurine super hero stuck into this route at one point. Anybody know about that ?

cool route, especially since it is usually in the shade haha. sequency crux near the top. first few moves are pretty interesting and involve some interesting footwork.
