Description

youtube.com/watch?v=iRS8a8H…

A great climber named Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish once said: Choss isn't shit. Choss is a ladder. Many who try to climb it fail and never get to try again. The fall breaks them. And some are given a chance to climb, but they refuse. They cling to the ground or the draws or yell take. Illusions. Only the ladder is real. The climb is all there is.

Start on either Malibu's Most Wanted or Simon Says. About 20 feet shy of the overhang a bolt line will appear between the climbs. Follow this up the overhang to its own anchors.

Naming Cred: Andy Feder

Location

Alternate ending up the overhang to either Malibu's Most Wanted or Simon Says.

Protection

13 bolts to chain mussyhook anchors.
