Climb up a gently overhanging wall on large and mostly straight-forward jugs. Turn the bulge and milk an ok rest with good feet while contemplating the boulder problem that guards the chains. desperately search for solid holds until you can move high enough to clip the anchors. Pumpy!

Note: After reviewing the book, this route may be unlisted and Barfly may be the next route to the left. The route described shares an anchor with Bang for Buck.


Far right end of the wall, just before it changes to slab. Left route of the two 4 bolt routes that share anchors.


4 bolts to clip-and-lower. Shares anchor with Bang For Buck.

I was texting Jake Mergenthaler about this route. He said that this is another route that's actually not listed in the books. Him and Kim put this (11ish)route up, but it didn't make the print deadline. Barfly is the next route to the left of this one, directly in front of the bar stool. Also, Barfly is 15 feet longer than this route and doesn't share anchors with anything else. May 5, 2017
