Description

Climb the slightly overhanging face on positive edges past two bolts (stay out of the corner for full value!) before getting a good shake at a no-hands rest below the roof.

Be sure to head right out of the roof instead of getting sucked towards the choss on the left. Get a good gaston with your right hand, and make a big move to a hero jug. Pull up onto the ledge (a second no-hands rest) before finishing with some pocketed face climbing to the chains.

Location

On the far right side of the Upper Tier, 30 feet to the right of Chupacabra, this starts 5 feet to the left of a big, left-facing corner, below a 4 foot roof 30 feet up. The route is easily identifiable by its brown-painted bolts.

Protection

7 bolts to chains at the top. Use a long draw on the last bolt below the roof to reduce rope drag.
