Description 

Justin Jeffs and I bolted this route in 2000 with the purpose of helping open the Bad Bananas wall for further development. The crux is turning a corner about two thirds of the way up. Some of the climb offers a unique sense of exposure while traversing a face that lies immediately above a roof. A fall on this portion of the climb could result in safe, but exciting swing into thin air.


Location 

This route extends up and left from a set of chains about 100 feet up Oscar the Grouch. Be sure to bring a friend who is willing to clean as you belay from the top. Bring a second rope for the rappel which is about 150 ft.


Protection 

Bring about 12 draws, and an ATC for the rappel.

I felt like the crux was in a small corner thing near the start of the pitch (2nd from the ground). It seemed to get easier as you go higher.
