Description

This is a good warmup route with a decidedly different character from its neighbor Mirthmobile (10a). It serves up a sampling of slopers, stemming, pinches, and jams. Pretty fun.

Protection

5 cold shuts to an anchor of 2 bolt anchor (no longer shared with Mirthmobile).

I saw someone take a wild pendulum fall off the top of this. Fortunately no serious injuries. Alan Nelson, if you read this, have you ever thought about adding a separate anchor and another bolt to straighten out the line? Jul 30, 2001

Thanks to Alan's work and generosity, this route is much better. I would nominate it for two stars and would recommend it along with the other two 5.10s. Thanks again, Alan, and great job. Aug 24, 2001

I gave this two stars. I thought it was a good sustained warmup. Mar 13, 2005

Pretty sure this is 5 cold shuts. Maybe it's just me, but I thought this was a classic, albeit short, climb. The movement is brilliant; the rock incredible. Any aspiring 5.10 climber should get on it. Also, I thought it was 10+, and far better than the two 10s to the left. Feb 20, 2006

Yeah, I actually liked this quite a bit better than the other 10s right here. Can't really put my finger on why; I guess it was the above-mentioned variety of holds and movement.

Also, I cleaned this on rap and felt it would have been a lot easier to clean while lowering. Mar 31, 2011
