Description

What a pitch! Start by climbing a left leaning ramp with 4 bolts. From the last bolt, head up the finger crack on the face. A short section of finger locks get you to a powerful move getting in to the pod. Rest up in the pod and do some thuggy moves to get up and out. Finish on the easier left facing, low angle corner. The name made sense to me, hopefully it does for you, too.

Location

About 200 ft. to the right of Eye Catcher

Protection

Doubles from fingers - #2 camalot should be fine. I placed one #3 before the finger crack. Stoppers. A 60 m rope JUST gets you down. Tie knots!!

The original line starts up the flake system to the left of the bolted ramp and steps right into the line about 8 meters up. I much prefer this start as it avoids a nasty, thin 11b crux, making the entire pitch more consistent and a little easier -5.11a.
The bolted ramp start is actually part of the route Surround Sound which continues right and up a bolted face. Apr 29, 2018

Wondered while doing why it went up the bolts. Personally I liked the bolted variation as the thin crux was fun and felt more like hard ten. However you do it the money section is the finger crack to the layback section to the upper ram that's the money pitch. May 28, 2018
