The rounded prow climbing of "Boy What Asshol...

Description 

The bolted, rounded arete climb. Staying straight on the bolt line is best but many bail out to the right, at least at the start, to make it easier. Near the top many climbers head left into the small dihedral for the finish but the arete straight up is more natural, fun and well-protected.

Location 

First bolted line right of Squeeze Chimney. Shown as route number 3 on the Overlook route topo photo.

Protection 

Five bolts to a bolted chain anchor.

This is a pretty pathetic name for a route in anyone's terms and I'm sad it seems to have stuck. It was about some weird agreement/lack of agreement between a couple of LA climbers and a couple of Santa Fe climbers and....well, the result is the name....

Been exploring the Overlook area recently and found this climb to be fun and well protected. The first bolt is a little high but the climbing up to it is easy and should not make many have second thoughts. The moves in the climb were nice as there are an abundance of solid hands and feet almost all through the route. Because of that, I would add that at no point did I find a crux as the climb was more just solid 5.10- moves consistently.
