Description [Edit]

Somebody wanted to do good. However, we could not find a reasonable 8 move but did find too many misplaced bolts and the anchor too low. After gaining the large tree ledge clip the bolt and make the only 7 move on rounded smears.

Location [Edit]

Far left on the Parking Lot West Wall and just left of Giggles

Protection [Edit]

Five bolts (only two needed) the rest is BD .75 and below. Bring runners to mitigate the drag over large ledges. The rap has a tendency to toss you off left.

The 2016 Bingham shows this route as 5.9, two stars. It is more like 5.7-ish, and not recommended, not worth the trouble. As noted above, it has poorly located bolts (odd locations), and ends in kind of a strange place - below what would seem to be the more logical conclusion. Oct 12, 2016
I added the route information directly from the FA person, just before press time. No, this is not an A-list route, but I suspect plenty of folks will enjoy it, especially when nearby routes are occupied. Oct 2, 2017
