What is there left in the thesaurus to say? 

Check it out, my brothers and sisters in ass-kickery! If you go to The Wall of Wow and find the classic 12a known as "Sweet" this new skool route just to the left is soooo f-ing spectacular that it has to be put on your must do tick list.

Start on technical, blonde rock and surf your way up to a powerful roof pull on black rock and skee-dattle your way to the anchors on tricky, black slab.

THIS THING IS A JUNGLE GYM! BIG HOLDS! BIG MOVES! IF YOU DON'T DO THIS ROUTE, YOU WILL KICK YOURSELF!

Location 

On the right side of what appears to be the entrance to a gully behind The Wall of Wow. Third route from the left and below the wooden step. The black roof makes it pretty obvious.

Protection 

6 bolts and Open Anchors. Bring eight quickdraws.

Junky rock, pretty good holds, and awkward moves. Maybe an OK warmup, but not a very impressive route. Feel free to take it off your ticklist. There are much better routes to be climbed in the canyon.

Good! Don't climb it, ever. That way there won't be a line when I want to.
