Description 

"Can't Get Enough of That Wonderful Duff", much like Homer's beer, this route is cheap and sleezy, but if you enjoy the weird "Beach style" of mini-routes, it is worth your time.

For full points, you must start on the white jug below bolt #1 and keep feet off the slab/ledge. From here, some cool tension climbing on edges takes you a little right before back left to a big move to a jug below bolt #3. One more thuggy sequence takes you up to the anchor.

Location 

It is on the right side of the main cliff, next to Samson Ale.

Protection 

3 bolts + a 2-bolt anchor.

Got on this thing yesterday and started from standing up on the kicker and thought it was was still pretty in your face. I'd say easier 5.12 from the point I started. In my opinion, this climb is worthwhile if you have done most everthing else at the Beach already.

Really good. Underestimated this route, packs a punch. Started down left on the white jug.
