[Hide Comment] Somewhat interesting, short climb. There are probably a couple of 9+ moves around the second bolt. However, some of the holds/seams were quite dirty. You might want to bring a brush to clean some of the loose debris on the holds. The flake at the start of Lost Dentures can also use a good brushing. Oct 9, 2007

[Hide Comment] The better of the 2 routes, and given 2 stars to designate that. Noithing to call hoime about, but interesting climbing at least. If you force an 'eliminate' line up between the 2 lines here, the climbing is 5.10 on "bad" holds and gives you a 3rd option. Jun 11, 2009

[Hide Comment] There are huge holds out left pretty much the whole way that take the grade down substantially. I thought this one was MUCH easier (better warm-up) than Grampa's Day Out. Aug 19, 2018
[Hide Comment] Considerably easier than Grandpa's Day Out and, I thought, not as interesting. Aug 19, 2018
