Easier to enter than you'd think. The top bolt was drilled off a shakey hook and is in a nonideal location. You have to do a move to get there but its safe and adds a lot to the character of the route.


Climb the left side of the arete that forms the left wall of the Perhaps dihedral. Its left of All Chalk on the left side of the arete.


TCU's a medium cam and a medium nut, draws for the fixed pin and three bolts

Might be all my grey hair, but I swear something must have broken off this. I remember floating this around 1990 or so before it was rebolted, but I failed on the damned thing last year (finally got it this year, but tenuously). By the way, there is a cool 2006-07 forum thread on MP about rebolting this route; the title of the thread is the same as the route name: Revenge of the Nerds Sep 4, 2011
Throw a C3 with a very long runner at the first gear placement then follow bolts up the arete. Just trust your feet. Sliced/Core-shot my Glider 9.9 on this one. Apr 22, 2012
