Probably the least enjoyable route I've encountered at the Lake but still worth while...I guess. It is unfortunately a fair bit contrived and the pin protecting the crux is comical and maliciously placed in the jug.

Begin by stair stepping the blocks towards the roof with the obvious cord coming out of something. Place some gear and cut loose, execute a few awkward humping maneuvers (hoocha hoocha hoocha, lobster) on positive holds.

The rest is pretty boring and full of detritus on holds and in the cracks. Oh well.


Left of Violet Hour, the U-shaped hueco stuffed with metal and chalk is quite obvious.
