Start at the green bolt 10 feet right of Cooler and continue for two more bolts up to the mini-roof where you can place a .75-1" cam. Climb directly over the roof and 10 feet to another bolt. from here follow any other route to the top.
This route intersects Road Rage, which traverses under the roof from cooler to the far end on gear.

I think the name comes from the one particularly sharp hold under the roof.

Fun little route!!


To the right of Cooler and left of Nighthawk.


5-8 bolts depending on where you go after the roof. Optional .75-1" cam


Yeah, it is just something to challenge you if you want something harder. We stared at it for a long time during one summer(2008 I think), rapped it, finally bolted it, crux has a 1/2" bolt. You can clip and go left and around which is also fun but we finally did it the next year straight up, crimpy as heck. Named it as the first underhang was razor sharp.

It definitely does have a "why bother" finish, no doubt about that. To me, the crux was more in finding the right beta rather than the actual moves. I'd say it's a good step up in difficulty from the 10's with the crux section being harder but much, much shorter. The falls are also safe, so this is a great introduction to the grade. Aug 9, 2015

Not particularly aesthetic or inspiring. After the sharp punchy crux, several bolts of "why bother" take you to the anchors. Still, a decent climb if you find yourself at Pinch Me and feel like a challenge. Aug 4, 2015
