Description

The steep, pocketed route on the right side of the east face. Great juggy sport fun! A nice switch from the usual Santa Barbara sandstone.

I agree Richard. In fact I'd go so far as to say it's one of the better routes in SB of any grade. When I first came to town I went out and did stacks and stacks of routes, but only a few are memorable. Makunaima, Tea Crack, along with Dancing Fingers are the ones I vividly remember from that time. Classic. Aug 5, 2012
I'm surprised this route doesn't get more love here on MP. It gets full stars in both the old Tucker/Steele and the newer Edwards guide, and I've gotta agree. Steep, sustained, numerous and varied cruxes, solid rock - the best route in SB at the 5.10d grade. Aug 5, 2012
