Art cranking out the start.


A great route that combines lots of burl and reach with a bit o' technique. Start under the roof and climb out on decent holds, then onto the face on some crimps. Get yourself established and make a big move to the left to a small rail. From there the moves get easier, pinch a cool quarts nob and top out.


On the swirly boulder, to the left of the tree on the left of "Child of the Storm." Starts from a sit under the low roof.


pads and spotters, the top out is kind of high.

AKA Sally Goes to a Rave. I like this problem, but I've heard it's tough on folks 5-8 and shorter. Not that that should stop anyone from trying it!

Got on this route yesterday. There is trick beta for shorter people. There is a micro/ credit card crimp that can be used as an intermediate from the flake to the rail. It isn't much but it allows you to push up off the flake and balance out as you grab the rail.
