Description [Suggest Change]

This seldom climbed line has some fun movement and flows nicely. The bolts are a bit spaced compared to other lines on this wall, but the harder moves are well protected, and any runouts shouldn't feel too bad. I've seen this route as both 11d and 12a, but I think it was probably on the lower side.

Boulder out of the streambed past a bolt to a nice ledge. Stretch up and clip the second bolt. Boulder up through pockets and crimps past the next two bolts and crux. From here easier ground leads to the anchors.

Location [Suggest Change]

In between "Spidergrind" and Flying Cows. Just to the left side of the large black streak.

This is much more fun than it looks. It is also more sustained than "Spidergrind," but with an easier crux. Mar 27, 2016

I call this one Shartnado. Couple of reasons one its tornado themed and when I sent it I was hung-over and nearly shit my pants when I farted. in all the years I have gone to LCC I had always avoided it but its really fun and I highly recommend. Mar 27, 2018
