Description

Crux comes right off the ground. Pull a small roof at 2nd bolt and continue through on large holds. Another small crux pulling the bulge up top to easier climbing to the chains.

Location

Located on the second wall of Damascus. At the base of the wall there are three incorrect route names written in chalk. The fizzler 12a, the chizzler 12b, and the drizzler 12c.

Dr. Goodkind (incorrectly labeled "The Fizzler") is labeled 12a and is the leftmost of the three routes

The bottom is a bit sandy, otherwise the route is very solid and good to go, imho. The entire route is pretty sweet- assuming I climbed the correct route (up the white streak). I found the bottom to be not to bad- about V3 or so, for me the crux came at the 4th or 5th bolt. Either way, fun and a perfect step up from Looking for Yesterday. Aug 20, 2013

Fun jug climbing with crux between 3rd and 4th bolt. Could use come cleaning. Sep 4, 2012

This sounds like the Bizzler 12b. The Fizzler is the next route right, 12a, pumpy climbing through the first 4-5 bolts to a white streak. Aug 6, 2012

This could be a good route if it cleans up. It is still pretty sandy. Anchors are the normal three links of chain. Wish people would use a longer chain, or mussy hooks, when they put up a route. Jul 12, 2011
