Description

This is the sharp, crimpy problem to the left of Reefer Madness. Start sitting down on edges and work your way up painful little crimps. There is a difficult crux move to a sharp, pointed hold, then go up the left side of the overhang. Super sharp, too sharp....

Location

It is the left route under the Temple Overhang, left of Reefer Madness.

I could have become very weak since last year, but I'm really not sure how this isn't at least V7. Shut me down so hard. May 13, 2017

I personally disagree, I thought this route was very fun with cool moves and perfectly sculpted crimps leading to an enjoyable topout. It was sharp but not THAT sharp. IMHO, I thought that this was better than Beached Whale and worthy of a solid 2 stars. Aug 23, 2016

The second hold on this broke sometime in early 2015. It used to be a horizontal rail, wide enough to match. Now it's a small, left-facing sidepull. It doesn't seem to affect the climb much -- still very painful and not fun. Jun 20, 2015
