Description

One of the best routes at the crag. Steep, sustained, and pumpy as hell. It's a nice step up in difficulty from Crankenstein due to some smaller holds and fewer rests.

Location

Just to the right of Crankenstein. Belay from the 4th terrace from the bottom.

Protection

Bolts.

Hard to imagine this route is 12a/b with its neighbor to the left at only 11c (before the big rest jug broke off). Crankenstein and Pump-O-Rama feel to me very similar in difficulty and style...and I wouldn't argue too hard with the climber who said both were 11d.

Sweet line though, whatever the grade! Sep 3, 2017
