Short, stout, and pretty fun. Start off a small boulder and pull some easy moves past two bolts until the black bulge is reached. Clip the draw over the bulge and fire the strenuous and reachy crux. Navigate a sea of unobvious and mediocre pockets and dishes on vertical terrain past one more bolt to arrive at the anchor.


Between "Sucker Born Every Minute" and "The Barnum Route".


4 blots + 2 bolt anchor.

This route had great movement on cool features. I'd have given it 4 stars if it were longer.

We all thought it seemed a little soft for 11c, but shorter folks will definitely have to work a little harder on some of the reaches in the steep section. The rock was featured enough that everyone seemed to be able to find something to work with (higher feet, etc.), so it wasn't a huge problem for shorter people. Sep 14, 2015
