This may be the hardest route in the Compound.

Several difficult clips low down culminate in a V9 squeeze move around the 4th bolt. More pumpy climbing leads to a powerful reach after the 8th bolt. From here, either break left into Cracker, or continue directly up and utilize the "cannonball" hold.

The direct finish is a hair harder than and superior to the left finish, but both are roughly equivalent. I was told that the cannonball hold was hollow and detached, but I found it adequate for my needs.


Cannonball starts directly above the right hand of the two sprawling oak trees growing inside the Compound.


10 bolts. No formal anchor at the top.
