Start off a small block and cast off up the lumpy face above. The crux comes early on as you reel in a small overlap/roof, but you'll need to fish around a little up higher to find the easiest line. The rock on this route is a little on the rough side, but it does provide some excellent friction and makes those improbable moves a little more secure.

Rapala is the name of a company that makes fishing lures.


Located about 10' or so uphill and right from Piece of Carp. Just beyond this route is a broken area of rock usable as a downclimb.


5 bolts, chain anchors

Fun climb. Great last move (mantle with high foot and slaby right hand). Apr 30, 2011
