Description

This route is a reasonable climb on reasonably decent protection although somewhat indistinct. You can find this general line on the Animal World lower tier. go past the first few short sport routes and around a right-facing dihedral to a taller wall. This is the wall containing Animation, the consummate local warmup. Just right of this is a system of cracks and flakes that works up, up and right on flakes, then back left to finish in a crack. The protection is mostly solid stoppers, but the occasional cam or two is nice. The sport route Unfamiliar Strangers is just to the right of this, and that route and this one may share some territory briefly near 2 of the bolts, depending upon your exact line.

Protection

A standard light rack. You can finish by traversing up and left to the anchors on Animation.

If you have the gear, this is the most classic warm up line on the cliff. Mar 17, 2007

This climb has one 5.10a/b move if you go straight up through the large overhang instead of heading right. The holds are all there, but the move is dynamic and committing. Apr 12, 2008
