Description

Fun slab climb. Foot holds are a little thin around the second bolt, but definitely worth climbing!

This was my first slab lead and the only route I've ever cried on. As the description states the foot holds are thin to the second bolt. Don't wander left, that's what lead to my panic cries. Funky move after the second bolt that feels off balance but if you push through the movement it gets better. I'm 5'0 and had a committing long move at the end where I was just praying there would be a jug where I was throwing -- there was! I personally wouldn't call this an instant classic but I also don't have a ton of experience climbing/lead slab either. I won't be doing this climb again but maybe it's your cup of tea. Nov 30, 2016
The name of the climb was tongue-in-cheek. It should have been called Brain Twister. ;) It requires some creativity and would be unpleasantly blank if the bolt line were followed directly. Jan 4, 2018
