Description

Start on the first bolt of Pummel Jenga and up to the second bolt of Pummel Jenga and then up and to the left towards the 2nd bolt of Elastic Happiness. At the 2nd bolt of Elastic Happiness, join Elastic Happiness. Continue moving up and towards the 5th bolt of Texas Radio and then up and to the right to the anchors for Texas Radio. A bit run-out and extremely thin between the third and 4th bolts (2nd and 3rd bolts of 6th Happiness). There is the usual 35 feet between the last bolt and the top anchors. From the top of the 1st pitch you can rap down, build an anchor and use it to TR other routes or you can head up and to the left to two rap rings. This second pitch is 5.7 but has no bolts so be careful. The great thing about this route is that you can do it even when the algae covered area is wet at the start of Elastic and Sixth Happiness.

Location

Starts to the left of Stranger than Friction Direct start and to the right of Elastic/Sixth Happiness. Uses Pummel Jenga start. Best first bolt protection on the wall.

Protection

4 bolts and 2 top anchor bolts for the first pitch. Here you need to build anchors or head up to the top for the second pitch. This second pitch has no protection until you get to the rap rings.

Please wear your helmet. Serious awkward fall potential can occur during the upward traverse from the 2nd bolt of Elastic Happiness to the 5th bolt of Texas Radio. Jan 17, 2016

Great route. Very sustained. The beginning of 6th Happiness is fun but not hard but it is also not very well protected. The beginning of this route IS well protected and usually dry and much harder than the beginning of 6th and Elastic Happiness. Overall, a very good and fun route. Nov 22, 2015
