DescriptionThis is the third from the left of the 4 sport climbs put in late 2012 on the far right side of the 1st Pew. It ascends a small roof to a better-than-it-looks face above that gets you dancing.
Carefully climb up & clip the 1st bolt (which seems to have been removed as of 5/14/13). There is a hollow flake left of the bolt. Reach up to the jug & clip bolt 2 (which seems to have been removed as of 5/14/13). High step left and rock on. Move onto the delightful face with nice edges. Weave your way up on small but positive edges. Find a crux around the 6th bolt (which seems to have been removed as of 5/14/13) where you must trust your feet (your right fingertips are loathe to crank on that toothy hold). After the 7th bolt (which seems to have been removed as of 5/14/13), you may find slightly bigger holds to the left. Finish at the 2 bolt Fixe ring anchors (which seems to have been removed as of 5/14/13).
Rappel 60' or continue up to Georgia Style.
These bolts sport 3 different colored hangers, red, gray, and black, because those were the ones that came out of the bag next.
Joe wrote that he and his friend equipped the route, gave a friend the opportunity for the FA, and his friend really didn't seem to care about the name, but "Father's Sauce" was getting thrown around quite a bit, since it fit with the other names used for the neighboring routes.
Given the recent bolt chopping, this is a TR at best.
