Dancin' Fool.


This route climbs the wall just left of a grungy crack system just left of the groove. It's a bit runout compared to other routes in the area.


The leftmost route, just left of the groove.


3 bolts, chains.

I noticed that Will gave it 5.7 rating. I have no idea where the bolts are now, but from John's photo, the area he is denoting as Dancin' Fool had at least 3 different toprope routes that we played around on. They probably ranged from 5.7 to 5.9, some on crystal strings and some on lichen filled smear cups.

If the bolt line is followed straight up, I'd give it a 5.8 rating for some of the thin slab moves. If you're playing with features off the sides, it's no more than 5.8-.
