Description

As the name implies, this route is uber fun!!

Hug the twin cracks in the right-facing corner, then step up, and into the corner proper. Surmount a high pedestal rock-up move and continue in the sustained and curving layback crack. Clip the chain anchors from a good stance and lower off, or belay your second from the stance so you don't miss out on seeing a moose in the beaver pond off to your right!

Location

About 400 feet to the right of "Mr. Clean" is a wall split by twin cracks in a slight depression.

Protection

Bring a variety of gear, including 3 or 4 larger pieces up to a #3.5 or #4 Camalot. Doubles are helpful in the medium sizes.

Way good. you can gear the start of the 5.10 crack on the right with smaller gear.Stemming between the two cracks is about the same grade. this is a good strategy to save the big stuff for the sustained upper crack. Jul 9, 2012

Doubles in #2 and #3? The person leading it before me had that and put an extra set on my harness (making for triples) telling me I'd use them. To humour her, I kept them and yes, I used them. I'm just getting into the grade, so the types of moves this climb requires aren't familiar too me, so I stiched the thing.

That being said; what a great climb! Jun 18, 2012

It's supposed to be "Fun CiTy". I don't see any way of alerting someone to change it! (?).

Superb climb. Top roped it but can definitely see leading it after a few more climbs. Sep 7, 2010
