Description

Despite the ugly appearance due to surrounding bird and/or bat excrement, this is a fun route. Start up poor looking rock to a couple of huge jugs to clip the high first bolt and follow small but positive holds up past the second bolt before trending left to the third bolt (crux) and fun moves on the exposed arete up to the fourth bolt. Enjoy fun face moves past one last bolt to finish.

Location

The right-most route on the left wall of Captain Hook's Grotto. Starts in the cave. It's shaded in the mid to late afternoon which is nice on those hot days.

Protection

5 bolts to chain anchor. The fourth and fifth bolt are shared with Peter Pan Flies Again which is the 5.11b to the left of this route.

I really enjoyed this route probably because of the airy moves left around the crux. May 26, 2008
