Description

This route is soooo Taster's Choice, man! Hip Kidz is the left-most route on the wall and one of the best 5.11a limestone climbs I have ever laid hands on.

Traverse in from the right and pull the roof with the mondo mega-pockets. Get yourself orientated on the slab and head left. There is a bit of scary distance on the slab feature between the fourth and fifth bolt. This area requires some fine movements with a bit of a tippy-toeing traverse, but after that, this fun as hell route is nothing more than big pockets to nice ledge-like slots to pockets to decent crimps to OH MY GOD these are tasty pockets!

All the kids will agree that even though the route is not rocket science the pump will get you starved for another nice pocket and slot. The challenge lies in the fact that each juggy hold seems a bit out of reach and might appear a bit hidden, BUT if you get your feet up and use your legs just right the movement is fun and oooohhh soooo Taster's Choice!

Finish this tasty little delicacy as an appetizer for the harder routes on the wall or consider it to be a satisfying main course. Either way this is a 5.11a that will not dissappoint!

Location

The left most route on the Taster's Wall. Eat this one up! It is soooo good!

Protection

Bring along ten quickdraws and a hunger for big moves to big holds.

Belayers might be tempted to use the stone chair fixed up against the nice, shady tree. Just don't too comfortable and fall asleep.
