[Hide Comment] Moderate climb with interesting moves. The moves to climb the corner crazy fun. One of the better lines on the wall IMO. Jan 11, 2012

[Hide Comment] A hard finish can be had by moving left out of the shallow corner to the top of the pillar to the left and finishing on the the new finish to Hairy Interlude. This was jokingly referred to as Hair Extension 5.11c/d. Feb 13, 2012

[Hide Comment] What a unique and enjoyable climb! Personally I thought the highlight was the strangeness - the pod halfway up is very unique, and if you employ some chimney/off-width/groveling technique, the upper section is also pretty cool. Do this and Speed Racer and you'll be in a great mood. Jan 10, 2017
