Launch into this Undertow classic by bouldering up through several crimpy moves that trend right. Gain a jug and a shake before charging up generally good pockets and the occasional long reach. As you endeavor through the steepness, resist the temptation to scream "TAKE" at your loving belayer. He/She is only there to help. Clipping the anchors provides a challenge as the finishing hold is nothing to write home about.


Locate this gem on the right side of the Undertow wall. Between Convicted (13a) and Chainsaw Massacre (12a)

I don't fully understand this route description...maybe he's confusing it with Chainsaw Massacre? The anchor clipping jug is a huge right hand sidepull at the back of the hole.

Otherwise a pretty good route. Sep 7, 2009

ale 8 is on you the whole way! rather than reaching up high to clip the chains from the finger-jugs, i found it easier to engage the right hand sloper next to the chains about a foot and a half above the finger jugs. one of my favorite routes i've done at the red! Nov 3, 2017
