DescriptionThe premiere route on the wall, this stellar line is classic Josh climbing with mostly face climbing protected by gear.
The moves aren't that difficult, but the trick is hanging out long enough to wiggle the gear in. A pin protects the lower crux, although there is another tricky section just below the top, especially if pumped.
Mostly face climbing with gear, this is like an advanced version of Poodles Are People Too, which lies further to the left on the same wall. After this climb you'll be ready to try Cool But Concerned (5.11c/d) or Baby Huey (5.11d). Four stars out of five.
