Description

This is another great route on a wall already stacked with classics. While none of its cruxes are super hard, the pump and fear factor on this route are both rather sizeable. Numerous cruxes culminate with an awkward 12- reach move with a #2 RP below one's feet. A bit of a spicy meatball....

Location

Start left of Center Route as for Surf's Up, then break right underneath a roof with good holds to stem on for the feet. Get some gear, then make a reachy-ish move to a spiky undercling. From here, several more mini-cruxes culminate with an exciting reach for a good hold ... traverse left into the last few feet of Surf's Up and use the Surf's Up two piton anchor. A yellow Alien and a large nut (BD #10 or so) back this up well.

Protection

Stick clip two fixed pitons to start, then mainly small nuts (RPs useful) and a few small cams along with a hand-sized piece or two. Also, one fixed Toucan piton.
