Don't let the length of this little hussy mislead you, it packs a punch (much like my ...). Very technical and bouldery climbing leads to a baller ender crux comprised of shit crimps and big moves!! If you wanna be a sissy (like me), you can TR before trying to lead it by lowering in from the long .10 to the left.


This is the shorty just right of the long .10. This is the furthest right line on Jabba Buttress.


4 bolts with fixed anchors.

This is still one of my favorite routes. A must for anyone looking for a hard, intense, foot work route.

A hold broke off of this a couple years ago. I have not been on it since the hold broke, but I would guess it's probably quite a little bit harder than it was before.

Gave a burn on this rig yesterday. Can't decide if using the halfway shakeout to the left of the third bolt is contrived. It seems sort of necessary for the sequence to flow, and even if you opt to go straight up, through very sandy crimps, this hold becomes a foot. Which hold broke?

I'd say the "shakeout" you mentioned is not necessary. I didn't even think that was on route. The hold which broke is the last small crimp before the final big move just below the anchor.
