Start on Mad Hatter, but head straight up where Hatter traverses right, its all lock offs on good two and three finger pockets.


Start on Mad Hatter, finish on the anchors in between Rubber Mission and Hatter.


bolts, Use a 70m rope

Always looked at doing that. A great looking section of steep. Nice. May 24, 2013

Good variation of Mad Hatter. Seemed a touch harder than Mad Hatter, but I haven't done Mad Hatter in many years so my memory could easily be off. Definitely easier than Goliath, so based on the local grade it must be 5.12+. Sep 2, 2013

A great new addition to the tower, my favorite of the new routes. I like it better than Mad Hatter as it has more independent climbing, with some fun hard moves. Felt like it had harder moves than Mad Hatter but better rests. Even without the Pit Stop I was able to get it all back before the steep section, and there are a few good rests higher on the route. Probably a little harder than Mad Hatter so given the standard 12d grade of Hatter this one is 12d as well and just a touch higher in the grade. May 19, 2014
