Description

A Side of Fries is a side dish for Burger Madness. This route is independent for all but 2 moves, where you step left for a hold and gear, then back right to the right-hand line.

Start on the ground about 6' to the right of Burger Madness. Pull up over the initial bulge on juggy holds to reach a seam on the slab. Head up this a ways protecting with small gear until you reach a crux bulge, where a lack of holds and gear forces you left for 2 moves, onto Burger Madness. Take this opportunity to place crux gear. A #3 Camalot or larger (the larger, the higher you will get it) on a 2' sling will protect the crux sequence heading back up and right into sidepulls and a layback. Commit to the crux (5.9 and pretty secure for a layback), and pull over the overhang into a set of solid, inset flakes. A few more moves puts you at a bomber 1.5-2" cam (i.e. #0.75 or #0.5 Camalot), and from there, you can finish up to the ledge as for Burger Madness.

Belay from #1 & #2 Camalots to the left or a cordalette around a huge boulder on the ledge.

Location

This crack lies about 5 feet right of Burger Madness, pulling over a small bulge on juggy holds to a thin seam, then up that to the crux bulge of Burger Madness, where this line is devoid of holds or gear, then immediately back right on sidepulls into the inset and offset cracks to the right above the roof. The top anchor is the same as for Burger Madness.

Protection

Gear from small nuts to a #3 Camalot. A #4 Camalot or larger is optional and probably advised if you are going to do Burger Madness (the next route over) anyway. A 2' sling for the crux cam is helpful.
