This strangely appealing slabby face climb is difficult right off the ground. Very very thin climbing with surprisingly good clipping stances gets you to a little pocket (that feels like the biggest jug in the world) around bolt 5. Easier climbing including some dirty holds leads to the anchors.

Not the most comfortable belay from up in the insect corner (or from the slanted boulder). You might consider walking down a bit and belaying from below.

This route gets 12+ in the guidebook. I'm guessing 12b... maybe c.


Immediately to the left of the warm-ups in the insect corner is a black, blank-looking, just less than vertical face above a slanted boulder.


Bring 7 draws +2 for anchors

This has to be one of the best route names ever!!! Check out a video of me on the route to the tunes of my favorite Black Sabbath song:

Also, for me the moves on this route where harder than any moves on Center El Shinto, Walk the Dog or Superfly. Jul 1, 2018
