Description

The climb begins on the right most portion of the large ledge.

Follow the broken crack line up the face to an improbable right leaning edge go for the undercling and pull over the lip, seems much harder than 5.8 when first faced with the move at the top. I really like this route definitely not straightforward, a little tricky at the end.

Oh yeah and if you feel inspired to lead this climb don't do it unless you want to solo it....

Protection

Pro to 1".

Two-bolt top anchor say like ten feet / three meters down from the top of cliff (but above where it gets sustained steeper below).

I think this anchor is shared with "Sting".

Since this whole cliff is well-oriented towards top-roping, I support the rating / comments by kenr. Basically it was challenging and fun. Aug 1, 2015

In terms of climbing difficulty, Groovin is easier than either Welcome, or the Sting. It is spicier than either of them as well, but not a solo. There is a good 15+ foot runout towards the top with no gear worth it's weight, but the gear before and after are great. There's also a little spice in the beginning but nothing too serious. You have to be willing to lean to one side or the other in some spots to get gear, and some of it's tricky, but don't let the R keep you from trying it once you've already done the other 8's here.
