Climb up the rippled face to the overhang. At the overhang, head up and left aiming for a nice chickenhead. From here, climb straight up to the shuts. The last moves before reaching the shuts are very sloppy. Really cool route for the grade.


This is the last route of the Circus Wall. Very obvious textured wall that leads to an overhang at mid height.


6 bolts, shuts.

Hanger is still missing 5 years after the last post as of May 2016. Climbing between the bolts is pretty reasonable but you don't want to fall.

Pulling up through the roof on chicken head's was quite fun. :) May 31, 2016

First hanger still missing, 19 Sept 2011. Some dicey moves will get you to the second bolt, and then really fun chickenhead pulling over the roof. Sep 23, 2011

The first bolt is currently missing a hanger. Use a stick clip for the second bolt if you are not solid at the grade! Feb 21, 2011
