Description

A great climb; similar to Pocket Puzzle and Pocket Party in style. Getting off the deck (first 2 bolts) is the crux. I stayed left at the beginning, which is easier, but may not have been in the spirit of the climb.

Location

Immediately to the right of Pocket Puzzle. #37 on Marty Karabin's "Road Area" (9/2008) pocket guide. Look for the orange bolts.

Protection

9 bolts. Anchors.

awesome route with cool moves and beautiful exposure to the canyon. First two bolts are tougher than the rest. Nice little mini cave about 2/3 of the way up. Feb 25, 2017

The crux is for sure at the start. After that it turns into pocket puzzle 2.0 Apr 9, 2016

The route above the second bolt is 5.9 and fun with a couple good rests. The climbing up to the second bolt felt more like a V1 boulder problem (5.10+) and was really tough for the 5.10 followers in my group. Dec 29, 2015
Fun route. Here's some gopro action.

This route is so fun! The crux I think it getting to the second bolt. The overhung part after the huge ledge is cruxy also but you have a great rest before it. Nov 3, 2012

Yes, this is indeed better than Pocket Puzzle! Way more fun and actually thoughtful -- not that PP isn't that, it's just that this one is more than just a great workout. Mar 11, 2010

This route is better than Pocket Puzzle. Thanks to Chris Bastek for giving me a guided tour of the ponds and putting me on this route. I did this one about 20 minutes after Pocket Puzzle both are great. Sep 28, 2009
