Despite being out of the way and short, this route has some fun moves right off the ground and continues up and over a bulge to easy climbing on a slab to the anchors. The crux can be interesting for many to figure out as they are trying to get both feet off the ground. A shoulder start is another option and gives your friends a good laugh.


This route is the left most of two bolted lines on Follies of Youth Block.


4 bolts. Anchors.

Loved this route. The start provides for an exciting boulder problem, with a nice and sandy landing for all the times that you miss the tempting jug. After the first clip, its a fun sustained climb for the next few clips playing between smaller huecos and jugs, so get your rest on when you can. Great for someone looking to push into the 10s.
