Start as for Pumping Harry off a good belay platform of rocks and clip the first bolt on that route. Once on the ledge, move up and clip two closely-spaced bolts up and slightly left from good holds on the right. Pull a strenuous move over the bulge into the scoop full of huecos. Keep your eyes peeled for faces in the huecos as your cruise the heavily featured hueco scoop up to another steep section. Bust out a bit of mantle to gain the big ledge and the anchors.

Six brown-painted hangers/bolts to a two-bolt anchor with chain/biners. Shares the first bolt of Pumping Harry.


Because the first bolt (shared with "Pumping Harry") is out away from the bulge, the rope can easily run behind the leader's leg if not paying attention. Leaders should pay close attention to their legs not getting behind the rope when pulling the bulge at the third clip.

If you plan to top-rope the route, TR through the draws because the route trends to the left quite a bit from the start.
