Description 

This route is a variation of Call of the Mild, or vice versa. It is a couple climbs left of Goofed on Skunkweed, and shares the anchors up top. It basically starts on the face left of Call of the Mild, which starts in the old quarry groove and goes up the corner. Although the ratings are the same in the book (since they link up at about 15 feet), this climb has a much harder start in my opinion, especially when it's humid out. Those little crimps get pretty slimy. It then follows the bolt line up high to a big ledge and traverses right to the Goofed anchors. Aside from the beginning, the crux is about halfway up on a series of bad holds with little feet. Don't go too far left and get off route into easier territory (I'm looking at you Bob and Isaac).

Protection 

Bolts. Please use your own gear for top rope. Please bring an extra biner and if the ones up top look bad or don't easily clip or shut, please replace it. It's good karma.
