Technically a variation to its sister climb, Fun City. A nice finger/hand crack leading to a tricky bulging crux and a dirty finish. A popular top-rope via the chains of its sister.

Start as for Fun City but take the right-hand crack to the right of the right-facing corner. Follow the tight hands crack as it narrows down to fingers and then opens back to hands to a stance below the bulging crux. Pull through the bulge and work up and right past a dirty flaring hand crack and the overhanging left-facing corner to dirty slab above. Belay off any one of a number of trees set back from the cliff's edge.


Start: Same as Fun City
Descent: Walk climber's right on the cliff top to either the rappel anchor just climber's right of Good Dough or continue climber's right to the walk off.


Single rack to 2", 3" piece could be helpful as well as doubles in the C4 .5-.75 range.
Trees above for anchor, feasible to work left to the chains for Fun City to avoid some of the dirtiness of the section not top-roped regularly.

Bit of a flaring section for the crux if you're into that. Awesome fingers otherwise
