Description

Climb an easy face to an overhanging section that sports a thin crack at its base. **BETA ALERT** Blast up the overhang on some thin and balancey holds to a jug, then make a wild traverse to a rail and get your feet up before you blow it. Didn't bring any booze to celebrate my lackluster climbing, so I had to settle for blowing bubbles with my spit, how gross...

Location

Second route on the left of the main wall. Look for the black hangers. Rappel from a two chain anchor.

Protection

5 bolts to a 2 chain anchor.

Crux is bulge but it's more than one move. Really no traversing since you only make one move left. ALSO, crux hangar is bashed and unusable as of 6.27.09, but it's safe to skip. Jun 28, 2009

Dont think I would call this 11a. One move from easy 8/9 climbing to a crux power move to more easy climbing. There are many more difficult and sustained 11as around (ie Black Monday). Sweet sequence at the crux! Stick it, its all there! Jul 11, 2010

Way fun with a big left hand move to the arete! Hope you stick it and move quick so you dont get pumped out. Sep 19, 2010

I wouldnt normally give a climb like this 3 stars (not very sustained), but I absolutely loved the moves I had (chose) to pull to get through the crux! Jun 20, 2013
