Pandammic is fun and pumpy and may feel harder during an onsight. The foot holds are generally better than the hand holds, except at the start & finish.
The start is a tough and reachy traverse left with only a few well-disguised, usable footholds on the way to a far-left jug.
The pocketed terrain above is easier, but some huecos between bolts 3-5 are much better than others, so choose wisely. Rest up if the start felt draining.
Bolts 6-8 bracket the crux, with marginal crimps, pinches, and sidepulls above decent foot holds.
No-hands resting is available just above the crux-exit jug.
The route finishes to the right at the last bolt, following slopers to a thin crimp on the lip, and an anchor-clipping jug hiding a bit further back, to the left.
Thanks to Mark Roth and the Flatirons Climbing Council for their indispensable help with this route!
Historical note - Jason's Flatirons guidebook has a similar line called "Two Bolt Mystery Route" with no known FA information. Both of those bolts were removed for this route: the lower one was off-route, and the upper was unsafe.
It is on the same wall and to the right of Panda Rigolo.
Follow the Royal Arch trail until 39.986160, -105.290327 where you exit into the woods on the right, just before some large rocks. Follow faint trails down to the gully and then up the other side, heading towards a SW-facing wall at 39.986247, -105.291660.
