Description

Sit-start to the right of 'Rave' and 'Fast Dance' on two opposing side-pull crimps. Climb directly to the jugs above. Coolness factor is highly beta-dependent - try doing it in two moves (I won't ruin the surprise for you (look at the photos if you want the beta), but doing it this way makes it one of the most fun problems at the Happies IMO, and preserves the grade as well.)

Soooo, not trying to be a spoil sport, but that video isn't of the actual line. You're too strong for your own good Andy! The line is supposed to go left hand out to the notched crimp on Fast Dance and then to the lip.

Nonetheless, great work! Dec 19, 2013

As much as I am really proud of this send, I just still have a hard time calling it a V9. Maybe its my style? Im not sure. I sent the Rave, my first v7, then started working on this route. It didnt take me too long to get it, although I did have someone there with really good beta helping me out. I am barely a v9 climber indoors.

This route is a 1 star in the books, but thats BS, I found it to be very fun. Good route! Apr 6, 2017
