Good fun on 11- holds/moves to a tough crux at top. I remember this climb as being a climb that started making me realize good technique will make some hard climbs feel really easy once you get it all down.


To the left of Flinch 12b and Grinch 12c on Dr Seuss Wall which is the raised area left of Prototype...


4 or 5 bolts + anchors (it might have sport anchors these days)

This route is only about 30 feet tall, and climbs the nice looking brown rock with 4 bolts.

Painful crux hold makes working on this one rough...

crux at the top was fighting the pump, but that wasn't the crux move...

I think I got the sequence down for a send next time im there. Route has some sharp rock...I found myself being a pus.
