Description

A 4-star route with a name like that? It might be reaching a bit to call it 4-stars, but I do think this is one of the best routes at this crag. I don't get the name - I didn't do any pinches on the route, and definitely didn't encounter any bird droppings.

This is a steep 40 ft route in the cave, overhanging 7 or 8 feet.

Starts out interesting right off the deck, and has a really continuous series of overhanging moves out to the anchors. Lots of jugs to keep the pump down, but there is a thuggish crux about halfway up.

Location

In the back left side of the cave.

Protection

4 bolts to chains - and an attentive belayer! There is a rock ramp in the back of the cave that could be a little dangerous if you have out too much slack.

Not as cool as Banana Dance but definitely deserves to be climbed. The crux is between the second and third clip where you encounter a sloper and a crimp on an otherwise jug haul. The top hold is pretty sandy. Dec 20, 2009

This climb reflects what is fun about sport climbing. You spot a featured overhanging section of cool looking rock and you just want to see if you can climb it. This one will spit you off if you hesitate at the crux! Mar 2, 2013
I found it a lot easier at the crux to hit the right hand crimp first and than hit the left hand sloper Jun 26, 2013

A knee bar made this easy, allowing me to move static through the bad holds. Feb 23, 2016

There is 2 or 3 spots to heel hook with the right foot at the crux. If you hit the higher one it makes the crux easy. My friend dave found it. Apr 8, 2016

awesome route! Felt relatively unsafe until clipping the 2nd bolt. Dec 28, 2017

This route needs another bolt between the current 1st and 2nd. It's been redone in glue ins, but would feel/flow better with one more. Not as good as the routes on the other side of the cave. Feb 11, 2018
