This route starts from the ledge on the left side of the wall. There is a water groove that turns into a box type dihedral with double cracks that this route follows. Prepare to test the rubber on your shoes on this route. Move up and right into the groove then follow feature of distinction to anchors. The crux is protected with gear you will hve to place. A must do pitch...Full stem ahead! The name is derived from all of the false accusations being made at the time by a climber who has done very little for climbing in general yet remains on the scene with their artificial intelligence spewage.


One set of RPs, some smaller stoppers, 12 Quickdraws

Very cool with really fun movement May 4, 2014
Great route with lots of thin moves and plenty of protection if you hang out for a while to place it. The top gets right in your face. Sep 24, 2003
