Climb the face between Tarawassie Wiggle and Plain But Good Hearted. More sustained than Tarawassie Wiggle with a string of novel moves.


5 bolts, pro to 1 inch. 2 bolt anchor.

Seemed plenty clean. Fun moves. A tightly squeezed-in line, but legit. Dec 4, 2016

Its seems the rock may have worn away as this seemed harder than Sweat Band to us. Mar 9, 2015

Easy climbing up to the break where a good 0.75" or 1" cam can be placed in a horizontal just down and left from the first bolt. Once on the wall proper the climbing is well-protected with a definite crux getting to the 3rd bolt in the lighter colored rock.

Fun climbing but the rock quality is not the best and it seems likely the climb will only get harder as the rock at the crux wears away with more traffic. Feb 13, 2012

After scrambling to the first bolt on easy ground the route is engaging and definitely has your attention. Somewhat of a squeeze job but you don't really use any of the crack or holds from it's neighbor to the left. The upper 1/3 gets your attention and has some thought provoking moves. A nice addition to the area, nice line and fun climbing. Thanks guys! Dec 4, 2011

Fun route, pretty easy for the grade, but good nonetheless. It is now feeling pretty clean especially for the area. Nov 20, 2010

A fun climb but still a bit loose. Took a fall around 3rd bolt when a hold broke off. That area is a little grainy. Mar 16, 2010
