Description

This is a pretty fun 5.9 route that protects well. There is a nice hand crack in the middle and a tricky bulge near the top. It is pretty sustained at the grade.

Location

series of cracks left of a bolted 5.8 and right of a bolted 5.10

Protection

cams up to Camalot #2 and some nuts

Hmm. Thought this one felt easier than the "8" on the right. So did my partner who led it May 22, 2016

Super fun, full value, lots of sweet jams. Gave it 9+ keeping with the trad grade but the top move (going straight up, not right to the wide crack) is definitely the crux and probably closer to 10a for me (it seemed a touch easier than the crux of Hot Dog which is the same bulge only 2 feet left on slightly worse grips, but closer to a letter grade easier not a number grade easier). DO IT!!! Feb 28, 2014

I enjoyed the route, finished to the right on a wider crack instead of going up the direct and harder way. Wimped out. Apr 17, 2011
