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

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
