Description

Very fun route (with a single big brown eye right in the middle) The close first three bolts should keep you from decking.

Location

Middle of the wall, just right of the big bulge with the fixed chain hanging from it mid-way.

Using the side pulls with your left hand up to the second bolt helps avoid getting as pumped as you would trying to pull of some of the worse pockets. Oct 19, 2014

During the closure of this area this summer (2013), rodents and birds took up residence in many of the big holes on this wall. Most notably, the big hole above the eponymous "cyclops" hole on this route has a big nest in it and a truly impressive mound of feces below it. Watch where you put your hands! Oct 9, 2013

The start is so confusing until you watch someone who has it wired (Josh) do it, then it isn't so bad. Dec 7, 2010

You can also start up Werepig (the next climb to the right) for 3 bolts, then move left to Cyclops for upper half, for a slightly easier (~5.11b) variation to these climbs, bypassing Cyclop's small pocket crux. Jul 22, 2009
