What [Suggest Change]

Another short but sweet Garden route. Overcome the first 5 feet of choss and enjoy powerful and delicate climbing past some fun holds the rest of the way. Best in the morning; the route catches sun in the afternoon.

Where [Suggest Change]

Left of Slithering Skink, goes up the steep hanging dihedral.

How [Suggest Change]

5 bolts to anchors. Like most routes here, a stick clip is advised.

For me, this route climbed like several powerful V2-V4 boulder moves with jug rests in between. Would have been very hard to onsight. The bolting is very comfortable. I started a bit more to the right off of the best jugs so that I could avoid most of the rotten rock. I found the crux to be moving just around the first bolt off of this small crimp and up to a jug. I found a nice kneebar just below the third bolt before some harder moves on interesting pinches moving to a jug. Easier but thoughtful climbing from there. I found the route to be about the same difficulty as Learning to Fly, but less pumpy, much easier than Snug as a Snail,and slightly harder than Naschash. Looking forward to climbing it more as a part of my routine. Sep 18, 2016

Its hard to compare this route to Naschash and Learning to Fly since its so short and physical. Its clearly easier to Fight Club, but I don't have a great feel for how either route should be graded. They both feel easier than the low 5.12s at smith to me, but both routes also complement my strengths very well. Sep 29, 2016

Felt like soft 11d to me. There's some relief between each boulder problem but boulders may not recover well at them. Aug 7, 2017
