Short and steep. Turn the overhang... not as easy as it looks.

bolts to chains

The left eye bolt at the anchor is quite loose. With no chains, this is a bit of a spooky anchor to rap from (think american death triangle where the rusted bolts are in a bit of a dihedral, so there's force pulling on each bolt almost perpendicular to the rock).

Kind of a strange line. Oct 30, 2016
This route is So So at best, and it is the only easy climb to use as a warm up.

I found that taking a casual Bolt-to-bolt -with a full rest at each bolt- run up Misery to be a better warm up, with the bonus being that you'll have the draws hanging when you set out on your red point.

Kid Gloves overhangs 12 ft. in its length, so it's pretty steep...and dirty, but it has its merit in an athletic sort of way. May 31, 2015

The first go I felt like this was really bizarre and sandbagged - worked the moves and on the second go it was an easy and fun 10.b, just find the feet and the better holds, lot of chalk on bad stuff. Sep 6, 2013

I really don't think this thing is that bad. The slab at the bottom is fun, and the top part is pretty cruiser if you work the feet.. Aug 12, 2012

throw some lockers on the chains, tighten them really good and have your partner lead this! the finish is pumpy Jan 25, 2012
this thing is really awkward but what else is there to warm up on? Aug 14, 2008

Solid 10b. Pretty pumpy with a few awkward moves thrown in. Aug 14, 2008
