Done in perfect canyon style. Ground up, no stick clipping, no top rope rehearsal and finished right before a thunderstorm hit.
The idea for this route came to me immediately after I had just got done sending Sweet and desperately wanted to do one more lap. With lightning flashing in the darkening sky, I finished a sick evening session with a link-up that climbs the first four bolts of Sweet and heads left onto the black arete of Cowabunga. Clip the bolt high above the roof and power up through some hella pumpy territory to Cowabunga's anchor. Good fun and still challenging since you get the staring pump of Sweet even though you lose the thinker crux that usually kicks people off Sweet's upper section. Hell Yeah might throw some climbers a mental crux. A potential fall while trying to make that fifth clip on Cowabunga's arete could make you scream "OhPhuck!"
