A fun romp up a thin seam, then face. Features a cool little lieback around the 3rd bolt (crux). Maybe the funnest route on this wall. Well protected.


Route on the left side of the Sex God Wall, starting up a thin seam just right of an overhanging section (where Say Hello to Geronimo is located).
Sex God Wall is the (popular) group of 6 lower angle climbs on the right end of Fairfield East, as you first get to the cliff on the trail.


5 bolts, Fixx ring anchor, shares anchor with Realm of the Venusian Sex Pygmy.

I'd call it "adequately protected," as in there are sufficient bolts, but not "well protected." Feels slightly easier than its neighbor to the right, Pygmies. Both felt harder than the 7 indicated in the Bechtel book.
