Description

Ok, this route has a strange name, but it is a good climb. It is the left-most route on Bulge Wall. It starts two climbs left and below belay ledge with tree. It has fun climbing on positive holds, some of the moves are reachy.

It felt like 10a, so I compromised with Van Horn's rating of 10c/d at 10b.

Protection

7 bolts to 2 bolt anchor.

I think a hold broke off... or... we all climbed it incorrectly with different ways of approaching the crux. Definitely harder than (and not as good as) "Love Pump" (in our opinions). Oct 8, 2017

Always pretty much agreed with Mark's 10a/b rating (1990 guidebook) but have seen a lot of better climbers having considerable trouble on it.

Personally, I enjoy the route. Great warm-up. Dec 15, 2012

Good set of sequence moves at the crux, but everything is there. May 21, 2012

Bouldery start and tricky to clip the 2nd bolt. Watch out for wasps. Jul 18, 2011
I know I'm in the minority, but for some reason I had trouble with this climb and found it harder than other 10b's or The Big Chill. It only has one crux section of a couple of moves, but I always feel scrunched up, then have to match on a long reach which feels like I'm going to peel off of. I guess it just exposes my weeknesses, although I'll play the 'height card' and say it's easier for short people! Jun 4, 2004

There is only one or two tricky moves up high on the route, while the rest is 5.9 climbing on big holds. Sep 28, 2003
In Stewart Green's guide this was called "easy" 10a. I agree. Nov 12, 2002
Great route, but a little soft. Try LOVE PUMP 10b/c which is to the right of turbo, and is the righmost route starting from a ledge. Jul 27, 2001
