Description 

This climb was named after the late Jim DiNapoli. We think he would highly approve. The climb is on white rock, and we thought it's not pigeon shit, it reminds you of climbing in the Garden Of The Gods, Jim's favorite climbing area.

The crux is at the top of the climb and seems like an impossible overhang, but there's a bolt just before starting the crux and the holds are big.

Location 

The route is on the far right side of the Robust Wall. Start the route on the right side of the obvious white streak (5.6).The left side of the water streak goes to the same anchor and is also 5.6 At the first belay start climbing up and right following bolts to the overhang up and right (5.10a).

Protection 

Pitch 1 has 3 bolts and an anchor. Pitch 2 has 9 bolts and an anchor.

BEWARE of overly aggressive raven nesting just above the top of the 5.6 pitch. At first, it just seemed upset that we were nearby. When we didn't leave immediately, it threw fairly good-sized rocks at us from the ledge above the belay.
