Description 

Despite some controversial methods for developing this (among many) routes in the cave, this is possibly the most fun one can have on a roof at this grade. Sustained handlebars and three finger pockets among numerous toe and heel hooks lead out to the lip. Would be 4 stars if it were all natural!

Location 

Starts at top of Captain Caveman, but can also be accessed as if starting Whamo (11b) and moving left along 5.10 climbing. Recommend up-clipping each draw to reduce rope drag.
