1st pitch is one of the best 11's in the park. Mar 17, 2009

2nd pitch is worthy, a bit harder, and an interesting linkup with pitch 1. Jan 14, 2013

I only climbed the first, but it was phenomenal. Awesome finish to a sick pinch. Great length, pump, and exposure. Dec 8, 2014

Great Climb, just when its getting too thin or there seems to be too much pump it lets off. Mar 3, 2015

Both pitches are a ton of fun. First one strong and pumpy, second pitch thin and technical. Perfect combo. Jan 27, 2016

@PINK, I think you've got those reversed.

First pitch technical and second more pump. Both excellent, second year and repeat has me bumping the star value. This route is as good as anything in Potrero. Mar 4, 2016

Really fun climb! Personally, I didn't find it terribly pumpy at all, and endurance is definitely not my strong suite. I found several good rests, so don't let the name scare you away. Anyway, great climb and definitely recommended. May 23, 2016
Great route!! Get on this thing!! Best 11a the the Potrero. Dec 21, 2016
Pitch 2 is more fun than pitch 1. Link em. Jan 5, 2017

P1 11 bolts to anchor. P2 10 bolts to anchor. Bring a longer sling to clip the 1st anchor (or back-clean) if you link the pitches. You can rap via the Petting Zoo anchor. Feb 5, 2017
Both pitches are wonderful, and linking them makes the best 5.11a in the world: sustained, diverse, fantastic climbing! Dec 24, 2017
