Great route!

Description 

I climb for routes like this! Five stars! Awesome movement on pockets, sidepulls, crimps will make you grin from ear to ear! A couple of thin moves lead to a sidepull flake near the top. Get ready to rumble as the holds close down to a few crimps and knobs just before the chains.

Location 

On the left side of the main Circus Wall. Just right of I Love the Big Top (5.9) and to the left of the 'Circus in my Pants'(12c). Starts on the right facing obvious layback flake.

Protection 

10 bolts to anchors.

This route is an absolute CLASSIC! I found the crux to be getting past the last bolt. The pump just kept gaining on me, this is as good as low sport 11 gets.

Maybe my favorite route at Ten Sleep so far. Really fun, juggy, pumpy climbing. Crux at the bitter end.
