Description

A short crux at the second bolt leads to fun climbing and some questionable rock before finishing through an exciting, slightly overhanging left-facing dihedral. After the first ascent a rusty, old nut tool was found at the base. It didn't turn out to be Karp's, but the name stuck.

Location

30 yards left of Simple Math

Protection

7 bolts. Two bolt anchor

Love this route! Favorite in Missouri, awesome rock, and great interesting long route. I only disagree that the crux is actually at the fourth bolt, just after you clip. Apr 30, 2016

One of the best 10's in the state. I've repeated this route more than any other route I've ever done. Feb 21, 2018
