A decent moderate clip-up. A blocky start, then a face that leads to a mantle onto a big ledge. Above this mid-way ledge you are forced to climb out to the right, where there is a semi-attached boulder that may come off someday. The first bolt above the ledge is easy enough to get to, but it is a ways up there (maybe use a locker on it? seeing as there is a ledge below you). The next bolt above that may be troublesome for some people to clip. Then face climb to the anchors.

The original description, with a photo topo, is posted on Vaino Kodas' website.


This recent route is not listed in any previous guide except Kodas' site. The route starts about 10 feet right of the start of Pussy Whipped.


7 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.

Only slightly less difficult than Tiger by the Tail. The bottom is pretty straight forward. I've heard others say they skip the 5th bolt, since it's off of the original line, but I made the interesting short traverse over and clipped it.
