Fat Boy Slim is Purple Line on Right of Crag

This route is good fun. It has a stellar start in the wide crack, kind of an overhanging off-width (fat boy) and then climbs the right leaning crack that doesn't offer the climber much of anything (slim). It pulls through a great face section and then onto the slab of Check the Technique. At time of write up, it has one pin, but may be replaced with a bolt at some point.

Small wires (i don't use 'em, but I know some of you LOVE wires)
