With more hugs that jugs and several awesome sections of slab climbing on bullet limestone this climb was an overlooked and passed over gem. It almost didn't seem fair when bolting this climb. It involved almost zero cleaning, very odd for the area, and it was clear right away that it would be an amazing addition to the wall.

Begin by climbing 'Mr. Roper' to a low set of chains just below a hanging refrigerator. Continue upward through hugs with a combination that may include but will not be limited to kneebars, butt scums, body wedging, and heel hooking. Solve the huggery and you are rewarded with forty additional feet of thoughtful slab climbing that surmounts two small roofs and ends with a cruiser corner that finishes in the always fun chert band of the wall.

Hug Life Forever!


This is the first route right of Ziggy as you round the corner heading up to the Celebrity Cave.


11 bolts to chains with lower-offs.

Two fixed chain draws are in place for the moves at the fridge.

Great addition! Don't lower from the low anchors unless adding an extra 40 feet of easier climbing that's so good it might make you grin ear to ear sounds like a bad time to you. Mar 31, 2018
