Ben setting up for the micro dyno.


This is basically a high bouldering problem with much easier terrain above the second bolt.

Start on the next route left of Shaking the Pope's Hand, making thin, balancy moves up the deceptive slab until you reach a jug from which you can clip the second bolt. The difficulties end here - follow easy ground past 3 more bolts or so to the anchors on Smack the Cold Booty.


5 or 6 QDs plus something for the anchor.

Every time I've done this route, I've finished straight up into Shaking the Pope's Hand. That seems to be the logical finish and makes for a good TR, whereas TRing would be virtually impossible from the Smack... anchors.

Interesting body english/balance moves in the first 20 feet. It seems soft for 5.11b, and not just because I have it wired.

Seemed like a tendon straining, micro-dyno for a 5ft 10in +2 ape non-English climber.
