Description [Edit]

This is a little top rope problem that turns out to be fun. Natural protection opportunities are scant, so in keeping with the posted desires for the crag, it's a top rope. Some might consider this a variation of Honey Pot, but it climbs quite differently.

About 20-25 feet left of Honey Pot, there are some wavy water streaks. The easiest start has you pulling on a wedged block (hopefully it will not move). Pull aboard and grope your way upward. Each time when you need a good hold, one seems to appear. Angle gradually towards the anchors of Honey Pot. Smile.

Apparently, this has now been bolted.

Location [Edit]

This starts about 20-25 feet left of Honey Pot above some bushes on some wavy water streaks.

Protection [Edit]

Originally, one would top rope off of Honey Pot's anchor. You may be able to get a direction or two, but the swing doesn't seem too bad.

Now you may be able to clip some bolts.

This has been bolted, and the first few moves to the ledge are good until it gets thin. The throw to get your hold over the first ledge is the crux. Don't underestimate this climb, the lower portion is 10 b/c then it turns into a 9. Jul 31, 2016

I could find no bolts branching off Joint Therapy (shared start with Groper) and heading to Honey Pot chains, and there are only 6 bolted lines from Deflator Mouse to Honey Pot, not 7. So Groper must still be a TR variation of Honey Pot. Sep 4, 2017
