This is the four bolt route immediately right of New Saigon, on the southwest face of The Hand, up the slipper ramp/slab above Power Bulge. It climbs a chocolate-brown, overhanging wall on pockets, crimps and huecos.


This is on the upper southwest face of The Hand.


Four bolts and anchors.

Talk about spicy getting to the anchors. Keep your cool and you'll have it. The movement on this one is just amazing. The spicy factor just makes it that much better. Super rad!!! Oct 3, 2008
Sorry. The spice is gone. There is a bolt added to guide one to the best climbing and reduce the big end whipper. More in keeping with the rest of the routes on that wall. Of course, if you like it spicy, don't clip it or better yet solo it. Jul 5, 2010
