Description

A little ways past Cruising Lane and RIte of Passage is a broad, tall well featured slab. This is the left of the two bolted routes. The crux is going for the anchors and requires jedi mind control and precision footwork. The route up to the crux is pretty casual at 5.7-8 or so. A must do if you're in the area. One of the best 5.10a sport routes in the RRG.

Location

Middle of Funk Rock City.

Protection

Lots of bolts. 60m rope is required and a stick clip is a good idea.

I thought the start was great! Really cool movement all the way up. I thought this was harder than funkadelic, with a spicer finish to the chains. Apr 29, 2014

Very run out from the 3rd to 4th bolt. Don't let it deter you though! Pulling the bulge with 15 ft of rope beneath you is quite fun!

Edit: After inspection of these photos I must have been on a very different route. Jun 28, 2016
