Description

This is a "trick" route, Hopefully you've been going yoga regularly, because this one requires a full body stem to a Jean-Claude Van Damme pose at the first bolt. Anything less than "Heated Advanced Power Core 5" will likely leave you ripped in two, unless you have freakishly long legs.

From there its simple pulls through the second and third bolts to the fourth. Hopefully you decided to finish before leaving the ground, because the fourth is a horror show, with more than an inch of bolt visible under the hanger on the botched placement. Some positive holds and feet will see you to the top if you so choose.

Location

Mis-marked in the '92 Vogel Guide, the route is in the shaded area in front of the 2924 and 2923 markers. Approach the lower tier from below, work your way to the right side and climb the wide chimney to the base.

Protection

4 bolts, with what look like 2nd Gen Leeper hangers (with the requisite amount of rust on the hangers). As noted, the fourth was badly botched. Two bolts on top with another useless stud.
