DescriptionThis is a fun route with varied climbing. Of the two lines here, this is the one that was established without prior TR rehearsal (although we did look at it briefly). It was originally done late in the day after finishing up another project, so time was of essence. The route was established in about an hour, and with one point of aid at the base of the corner since the gear was originally poor, and the park was about to close. It was repointed solo a few days later. The sketchy gear was improved at the start of the corner (we'd actually considered a bolt previously).
Also, a couple months ago we discussed the possibility of the line finishing directly up instead of traversing out right (we'd originally considered this). The route now finishes this way, past an additional bolt.
Start same as for Sly Hooks. Climb past same 2 bolts to the ledge. Move up past gear and a bolt into the corner on great jugs. Get some crucial gear here (.5 camelot - see picture) and work out a funky move into the corner. Climb it to the top. From here climb up past 2 more bolts to an anchor. Two options exist for the finish - straight up is about 11c, right and up is 11a or so.
