Description

This is between "Real Men of Genius" and "The Adultress" is "The Fornicator".

It is an excellent route with some 10d/11a slabbing that leads to a crux around the 6th bolt. The crux involves some insecure sidepulling and footwork to work through an overhanging apex. This is difficult to onsight but not so bad if you know where you are going.

After the crux, there is a no hands rest and then the climbing stays overhanging on big, juggy huecoes (10+).

The route doesn't quite pack the multiple crux punch of "Real Men of Genius", but it is pretty sweet.

Protection

A dozen bolts to anchors.
