Solid wonderful route ! it climbs better than it looks. Don't think you need double #4 for this. Jul 31, 2017

Definitely legit offwidth near the top for those with smaller hands. I couldn't get good fists near the end so it definitely felt harder than 10b to me. Very fun, though. Sep 16, 2013

Every bit as good as Space Truckin' as far as I am concerned. Climbs much better than it looks in the middle, and the top is every bit as good as it looks. Crux for me was the sequence off of the pillar, green and red camalot size, to gain the hand/fist crack above.

Again, if Space Truckin' is getting railed like a sexy grandma, go visit its ugly sister up the hill that climbs just as well, and is a solid notch up in difficulty. Sep 30, 2012

This climb would be a good warmup for Blockbuster to the right. Jul 30, 2011

Solid .10b, crux at the top feels a bit harder than Fisticuffs. Face holds appear as soon as the crack gets super hard. Sep 28, 2010

Gear Beta: If you want to stitch the top of the climb up, save a 1, 2, 3, 3.5, and 4 Camalot. I would go heavy on the big gear, 3s and 4s because there are some spots on the lower and middle parts of the route that protect best with a 3 and a 4. You could get away with other stuff, but it does not sound (tap) as good. Decent route. The top is the good part. Jul 7, 2009

Solid, Yose style fisticuffs. Get ready for a donnybrook if yer fists aren't solid...have seen several whippers at the slight bulge. Mar 19, 2007
