Description

About 40 feet left of Thank You, Scott. Very technical and sequency, this route feels like a 35 foot boulder problem. The crux comes *before* the first bolt, so bring a stick clip (if you have the courage, you can use a pad, because landing isn't bad but not great) or TR this climb.

Location

It is 40 feet left of Thank You, Scott. It is also the only bolted route on the wall.

Protection

3 bolts and rebar at top to build TR anchor.

Careful on the top rope, your rope will get some good rubbing in on an outcropping. Jun 9, 2011

This is a great route, despite its shortness. I would definitely recommend to stick-clip, and if you do, the route is super safe and well-bolted the rest of the way. Definitely agree that is feels like a long boulder problem, as the moves keep coming and offer little rest until you're standing below the finishing ledge, trying to shake off the pump and figure out the mantle.
