Description

Mechanical Animals starts on the same stone pedestal as Hopeful Monsters. Start just slightly left of the bolt line and don't be afraid to to use a few of Hopeful's beginning holds after clambering your way up some blocks. Claw you way up some small holds to a pair of mondo jugs that can serve as your first rest. The fun begins with a couple of drop-knee moves to small holds on really overhung terrain. Clip from a microjug and get set up for a flying sidepull and stab for a great left-hand hold. Get set up for a steep crux and launch for a strange, black pocket that bites back. Struggle your way to the anchors and scream. This route is definitely suited for rock star bouldering types who love super-steep, sustained, technical climbing with several powerful moves onto low probability holds right up until the desperate fight of a finish.

Location

Land of the Shorties. 4th route from the very left hand side of the wall. Start on top of pedestal.
