Things I Never Learned starts up the steep face right of Alcove Crack. The first bolt is a little ways off the ground, but easy to get there. The crux is a pair of insecure moves that lead to a stance below the second bolt. From the second bolt, continue up and left past four more bolts to the anchors. Best climb of the four on the right side of the alcove.
Located on the right side of the Things as They Are alcove. First bolted line to the right of Alcove Crack.
6 bolts to anchors.

This route was a lot of fun, the beginning sequence can be a little tricky but awesome route.

This is a one move wonder, but puts a smile on your face. Worth doing.

I agree with Evan1984. This route is a lot of fun, a couple of tricky parts. In my feeling, mostly the start with the high foot.
Definitely atop my list. I felt so accomplished when I get done this route, huge smile on my face! :)

There's a cool boulder problem to the right of the start that you can do on TR after climbing this route. You start under the bulge and make a big throw up to a sharp jug, then move up and left over the bulge back onto things I never learned. Unfortunately, I don't think there is room to put up a whole new route here with this start...

Definitely felt the first move was the crux... maybe because I didn't have a stick clip. Fun route, still stays somewhat fun in the easier moves up top. Good view from the anchors.

The initial sequence is a fun (gimmicky?) move up to a (potentially water-filled) jug and the first bolt. I found the sequence to and past the 2nd bolt to be the crux. The rest of the route was much easier.
I always enjoy the opening moves but will not be getting on this one anytime soon.

Find the big jug after the bouldery start. First two bolts are the crux, but smooth sailing after that.
