The farthest left line at the Scorched Earth, this perplexing route is a good lesson in funk. A fairly easy start leads to a baffling and just plain odd crux. Despite it's off-balance movement and wealth of insecurity, this climb still remains popular. If you hop on this climb first, a majority of the routes after this will feel pretty straight forward.


Follow the trail from the parking lot to the base of the main wall, head left and up a small hill into a nook. This will be the last route on your left.

Funny, I really didn't find this one all that funky. The crux involved a little body-weight adjustment but didn't feel that bad at all. Just channel your inner gym climber and go for it. Great feet and ever-so-slightly-positive edges the whole way up.
