Description

Insanely hard, sharp start with lousy feet into some longer reaches and lots of sharp side-pulling. Sustained.
The book calls this 11-. My partner and I felt it was a full number grade harder than Ruby Slippers.

I think the name of this route is actually Professor of Stinkology due to the dubious circumstances used to create it. It is pretty stout. I didn't get a chance to climb it before the book was published or this is the name that would appear in the book. Aug 26, 2009
What's up with the manufactured hold at the bottom?!?? Aug 27, 2009

After a long time trying to figure out the start, we finally worked our way up. Crux is at the bottom, before the first bolt, followed by pretty cruiser moves the rest of the way.

I personally found this route to be rather enjoyable. I barely used the dubious undercling and believe it could be done with a much worse hold. While the climb eases significantly after the first bolt it is not entirely trivial.

A stick clip is recommended for the first bolt as the climbing is challenging and small tree stumps and roots are at the base. Jun 2, 2013
