Description

Easy for the first bolts then steep and interesting moves, with a few shakeouts, to a good rest. From here head straight through the next steep section to gain the steep face. The climbing gets increasingly challenging as you get closer to the chains. If you break left from the rest you will be on "Lucy", if you break right it will be "Meanderthal".

Location

Starts in the middle of the cave, where the ground level is highest. Shares start with Lucy and Meanderthal.

Protection

14 bolts to lowering biners on chains. May need a 60m to get completely back to ground.

Fun route! The techy face climbing at the top was awesome. Failed to find the bucket hold near the lip of the roof and I believe the pullup on bad slopers that resulted made it a solid 12b. May 19, 2017

This route is great!!!! A great one to test your skills! In one of the books it says it gets easier after the 3rd overhang......NOPE only gets harder. Very pumpy. also think more on the 12d side. maybe its just me. Thumbs up though for whoever bolted this route!!!! Apr 18, 2013
