Description

This impossible looking face sits to the right of her sister route, Me So Horny. Similar to Me So Horny but with a much harder crux coming at about the height of Me So Horny's anchors. Long moves off of crimps lead up to the crux at the 4th bolt. The crux is deceptive, powerful and insecure all at the same time. At the 5th clip a high step gains the slab and a welcome rest. Easy climbing leads past the 6th bolt and a long, easy runout to the anchor. Although Bachar called this .12b, most consider it one of the harder .12c's in the Gorge. Excellent route.

6 bolts to mussy hooks

Amazing technical and sustained route on great rock. Likely the best line on Riverside island. The two run outs at the end are not hard but will keep you very engaged :) Dec 15, 2016
