The name and grade comes from the Steamboat Springs Rock Guide. It sits in between the current bolted routes on the left side of Blob Rock. It starts with fun overhanging jugs and then goes through a funky flake/crack up to the anchors that are shared with the bolted route to the right.


This is the second route from the left side of Blob Rock.


The anchors are shared with the sport route on the right. It is usually toproped, but I have heard that it has been lead on gear. I am unsure of the requirements, but it is definitely thin.

This route is immediately right of Far Left (makes sense). It can be, and has been, led with 1 red or yellow and a few very small cams and nuts carefully placed. On lead, it is R.
