Description 

The left half of the Wall of the '90s is capped by a large roof system, pierced by several hard, gymnastic routes. 7 Minute Abs is the latest and hardest of the collection, following the swath of molasses stone with lime lichen highlights ten feet left of Harlot. The climbing is particularly thuggy, with core-cramping tension moves to reach the lip of the body-length roof, and a number of burly dynos to clear it.

Begin up the Hey Good Lookin' slab, passing its first small roof, but then head straight up into the large roof where that line breaks left. Work out the body-length ceiling along an orange flake to the crux lip turn. Above, the climbing remains pumpy but excellent, following good incuts up the slightly overhanging panel. Negotiate a final mini-roof crank to gain jugs at the anchor.

Location 

This is on the far left end of Wall of the '90s, beginning up Hey Good Lookin' but heading up and slightly right where that line breaks hard left.

Protection 

This extension was bolted in November 2015. There are ~7 new bolts (after branching off of Hey Good Lookin’) to a two bolt anchor.
