AKA "Bolting Blitzkrieg", this is another line where pulling down will only get you so far (like Tutu Man). Although the back of the crack has some poopy in it, most folks don't grab it as they chimney, stem and otherwise ascend the pod. After you Escape (crux) great climbing up the crack will leave a smile on your face.


At the left edge of the Grasshopper Wall, the obvious pod to crack above. Just left of the arching layback crack that starts Sugar Mama.


Well protected with 12 bolts to 1st anchor. I understand that a harder (10d?) long continuation leads to the anchors of the 12a to the left and is called Pu Pu Man.
