Description 

If you liked "Cruisin' for a Bruisin" then you'll think to yourself when you look at this route, "It can't be that much different... can it?" and you'll start climbing the route and soon find out just how different these routes are. Climb up through two small bulges to a roof section that you'll think is the crux. Pull this roof using the slopey crack and fire up another bulge. At this point you'll be pleasantly or not so pleasantly surprised to find out that the route continues for another 50 feet on small crimps and barely there feet. Enjoy!

Location 

Left of "Cruisin' for a Bruisin'" and "Boltergeist"

Protection 

10 bolts to 2 BA

I thought the top slab was pretty pointless to have bolted... was more of a scramble than anything. Only good for insane amounts of rope drag if you have friends planning on TRing it
