A shot of a climber on the crux of the first pitch...


Both pitches are 5.11a. Although the first pitch is better, the second one is still worth doing.


Between Onward Through the Fog and Petting Zoo routes.

1st pitch is one of the best 11's in the park.

2nd pitch is worthy, a bit harder, and an interesting linkup with pitch 1.

I only climbed the first, but it was phenomenal. Awesome finish to a sick pinch. Great length, pump, and exposure.

Great Climb, just when its getting too thin or there seems to be too much pump it lets off.

Both pitches are a ton of fun. First one strong and pumpy, second pitch thin and technical. Perfect combo.

@PINK, I think you've got those reversed.

First pitch technical and second more pump. Both excellent, second year and repeat has me bumping the star value. This route is as good as anything in Potrero.

Really fun climb! Personally, I didn't find it terribly pumpy at all, and endurance is definitely not my strong suite. I found several good rests, so don't let the name scare you away. Anyway, great climb and definitely recommended.
