DescriptionIf only this route were as long as the song. The climbing is great while it lasts, but unfortunately it's over well before the guitar solo.
Begin a bit left of the bolt line, next to an old maid yammering about glitter. Make non-trivial moves up and right to a good stance below the bulge, near a confusing sign.
Make big reaches over the bulge, ultimately reaching some good pockets just over the bulge. Try not to be distracted by the singing birds.
Think about it.
Try not to sob when you discover how small and slopey the holds on the slab are. Work up desperately to the low anchor and some smoky trees.
No more rock, so you'll have to hum the rest while you thread the anchor...piper will lead us...echo with laughter...May queen...yes there are two paths....
LocationThis is the fifth route from the right side of the Heaven Wall, or 2nd route right of a right-facing dihedral.
...your head is humming and it won't go....
