"Uh, Huston...we have a boulder problem..." 

A super-funtastic route with big moves to big holds. However, this juggy-wuggy good time also has the occasional small sequence thrown in here and there for good measure. Strap yourself in but don't get too cocky. Be prepared to lose your orbit and altitude since this hunk of rock is a bit hard to read. Climbing gets harder at mid route where a dignified red point crux gets tossed in your face at just as the pump is about to blast you.

Make sure that all your systems are go before getting on this one! One of the better onsightable routes within its grade and style. Come try this one out and see if you have THE RIGHT STUFF!


Rightmost route on the Space Balls Wall. In fact, it is the final route in the entire Dark Side area. If you miss the steep, winding Ludicrous Trail up the hillside and to the ledge you can keep walking west you will end up at The Hole In The Wall. This nice piece of real estate has two very nice mid-level five tens on its slopy, northern side.


8 or so quickdraws. Open Anchors

The last move to a jug is huge, be careful, there's a ledge below you if you miss. Cool climbing on big holds.
