Description

This is a good overhanging route that starts on the lower rightside of Bell Buttress, just up from the tree crossing at the Patio boulder problem. It is the second route on the wall (there are 5 new route) when looking at the cliff and going left to right. Stick clip the first bolt (or boulder up to it) then fire up a series of difficult moves to a good stance. Shake out then continue up on 5.10 moves to the top and the anchors.

Protection

7 bolts to a 2 bolts anchor.

This route is a gas! A hard start yields to a bomber knee-lock and from there on out the climbing is reasonably moderate (10/11) and well protected. The final sequence offers as much fun as you can get legally in Boulder. Kudos to the FA guys again. Jul 18, 2003
A great route with or without the kneebar. Along with Bell Tolls.. one of the better routes on the crag. Aug 3, 2004

Really fun climbing on this one. The only, yet common, complaint was that the last bolt didn't provide good protection for the finish, particularly for shorter climbers doing it on sight. Overall, substantially easier than Clyde's Big Adventure but still probably in the 12a range. Jun 30, 2014
