DescriptionStart right of Walk On The Wild Side and just right of Us and Them (aka The Route Formerly Known as Negro Girls).
Pitch 1) 5.10b R/X - Climb 20 feet up to the first bolt, clip the bolt and traverse left to second bolt. Clip the second bolt and run it out to the third bolt at a bulge. Mantle over the bulge and run it out at least 30 feet to the fourth bolt. A fall from this section (before the fourth bolt) would surely be life threatening. Clip the fourth bolt and make a hard move to the right reaching the fifth bolt. Crank over the bulge and reach the anchor.
Pitch 2) 5.10a R - Climb up and a little left of the anchor. Run it out 30-35 feet to the first bolt. Clip the bolt and head right up to second bolt. Big fall potential if blow any of the clips. Angle a little right and then straight up to a two-bolt anchor. Rap or follow the third pitch of "Walk on the Wild Side" to the top and walk off.
Essentially a more runout variation to the first pitch of the route Negro Girls; the second pitch is the same as that route.
