Description [Suggest Change]

You will understand why this is called Fancy Dancer once you attempt the balancy, high stepping moves. Follow the thin crack to the right of Number 6 a.k.a. The Bulge. The crack ends about half way up the face, you can either lower off or finish on the top of Number 6 a.k.a. The Bulge.
  • RCM&W #54, p.166.

Location [Suggest Change]

This route is located immediately to the right of Number 6 a.k.a. The Bulge on the same face and lead up to the middle section of Blue Moon.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Nuts and small cams on lead. Standard top rope set up, often TRed on the same anchors as Number 6 a.k.a. The Bulge.

A thought inducing route. Little trickier for short climbers. Over all VERY FUN! Mar 22, 2010

I tried this route the other day. I assumed the arete is off near the top. I basically found myself with a bunch of poor holds and mostly just a wobbly block to make a huge reach to a great jug (final difficult move). I think I can do the route this way next time I come back, I'm mostly just curious if reaching right towards the arete is acceptable beta. Sep 3, 2014
