Description

Remember the old cartoon short? Stop to smell the flowers and you might just get stomped. Stunning jug-haul with a dyno in the middle. Starts with a nice roof, too. Between this route and Kraken is Mike Wazowski (of Monsters Inc.).

Location

Just right of the chimney at the downstream end of the wall. Marked by a fixed chain half way up.

For tall climbers this is a more difficult route, IMO, and deserving of the 12c rating. At 6'5", I felt the standard beta of climbing on holds to the left of the fixed chain at the crux didn't work for me at all--way too scrunchy given the left hand sloper. It took some time and concerted effort but I managed some really fun tall-guy-beta that uses holds (and a kneebar!) on pockets to the right of the chain draw to finally put it all together. Super fun route! Jun 24, 2015

There is no need to dyno on this route, and you might want to sitdown and smell the flowers in the middle. Fun but easier movement above the crux section.
