Description

This route starts on the slab immediately right and below the start of Digi. Follow 2 bolts (1st crux around 2nd bolt, height dependent) to a short groove (gear) and a couple more bolts above. Continue up on easier ground, crossing 'Your Mother was a Hamster' - finish on the slab above with the three right hand bolts (2nd crux). Fun route with a bit of variety. It's easy to get this mixed up with 'Your Mother was a Hamster' on top. WATCH rope ends on lower/rap!

Location

The route is located just right of 'Digi' and left of 'Your Mother was a Hamster,' however it crosses Hamster at the fifth (shared) bolt and finishes via harder face moves on the right (vs. the easier Digi/Hamster finish on the left).
Tight rap with one 70m rope.

Protection

8 bolts (including the 5th bolt which is from 'Your Mother was a Hamster') and small gear up to 1/2"
70m rope

offset cams were very helpful. May 22, 2015

(update 12/27/14) just climbed this again a few days ago and placed (imho) two pretty solid pieces between the 2nd and 3rd bolt: 1st piece was a blue metolius offset in the finger pocket, 2nd piece was a green/yellow alien offset in the corner. someone else suggested a PG-13 rating and that may be appropriate for the section between the 4th and 5th bolt, easy climbing but not a whole lot of pro.

I found the gear placement to be really tricky between the 2nd and 3rd bolt. Small off set nuts or cams maybe the best option? Oct 12, 2014
