The two first bolts are a bit spicy. Start on the corner, layback and move right to clip the second bolt. Then move up on easy climbing into the face. The last 20 feet get a bit harder. Really fun route!


Starts on the corner right from the mesquite tree (and the start of Hair's on Fire).

Congrats on your first 5.11 lead Angel. Way to go! Only back a month from almost two years in Afghanistan and already cranking 11's. Nice work!!

Actually I believe that Tony Lusk did the first ascent of this route. As he told it to me, he stole the red-tagged route while Strassman was in Europe, hence the name. Afterwards he was sorry that he had done that.
