The Iron Pickle. This highball airs it all out. It starts with slab, moves to jugs and overhang, rolls over a lip, and back to slab to finish. Just when you think you've hit the end of the road and it doesn't seem iike the route continues, know that there is a hidden hold right where you need it. Climb the slab, get the jugs in the overhang, make the long reach out to the secret hold, grab a crimp on the lip a bit higher than the jug, get your feet up and high step onto the base of the headwall, move through the eyebrows, climb to safety, cheer, thank your spotters, have a beer. By the way, the landing is pretty darn flat and rock free.
