Romper Room is a top notch climb that I feel is on par with the more popular, Eyeless in Gaza. I guess all the first ascentionists reached the anchor at precisely the same moment, back when men were men. Approximately 10-15 feet of awkward, blocky but fun 5.6ish climbing leads to the first bolt and a stance. Clip the next bolt above your head and come back down to view the crux, a bouldery, balancy set of moves up to a small roof. Keep your balance for the third clip, pull over the roof, and enjoy the sustained and blissful face above. I agree with Jay Knower who wrote in his description of Yellow Matter Custard that, "Despite the lycra tights and the high-top boots, those guys knew a good sport route when they saw one."
Yellow Matter Buttress, just right of Yellow Matter Custard, just left of a wet, dirty crack.
