Description

Is this route a "crowd-pleaser" in the sense that, while on it, you're basically invisible because of a nearby tree, or is this route a crowd-pleaser because if you fall, you go shredding through the very same tree? I dunno.

Though somewhat chossy, this line has fun moves and a bouldery crux on decent stone (save a crucial layaway/kneebar pinch that you clip from at the third to last bolt -- if this hold doesn't get some glue, it's not long for this world!).

Crowd Pleaser begins just left of Handy Boy, then moves in to Handy Boy, clipping the anchors and continuing up and slightly right onto the orange headwall to another set of gold-shut anchors at 50 feet. All the hard biz is above the first set of anchors on Handy Boy.

Protection

10-12 draws. You'll need double draws on a couple of clips up high.

I make bold, enjoyable pumping flash of this route. Movement feels good, although I do not like the difficult tree nearby. Forearms refreshed at crux. Apr 24, 2015
