Description

This excellent route has a bit of everything. Getting off the ground poses a challenge with some tricky arete moves. There's a good shake before the committing, though juggy overhang, and a final crimping section leads to the anchor.

Location

Two rtes left of Casada Noodle Soup. Immediately left of a new (?) route with red hangers.

Protection

Bolts. Stick clip recommended.

So much fun that I decided to take 4 tries to redpoint. There are two ways to get to the crux move, both are fun (one feels and looks much cooler). The top half is pretty easy (especially after the crux move). I had to shake out my right arm for 2 minutes after the crux. Mar 8, 2017

My wife, Leslie Kelch, and I put this up...who knows when, probably 1999 sometime. We were watching some acrobatic Ravens performing near the cliff, who my wife thought must be "Crusin for Chicks". One of my favorites. Sep 26, 2007

Great route. Decided to give it a try cause it just looked fun! Suprised myself by keeping it together through the overhang, but the holds are awesome! Definetly gets your attention right off the ground. Sep 15, 2007
