One of the most overhung routes at French's (and definitely one of the dirtier ones). BUT: I cleaned it a bunch summer '08 and must say it is really fun! I couldn't figure out how to clip the last bolt, as the route naturally climbs a bit right of it, so I skipped it- clean falls if you miss the victory jug near the anchor. Enduro, overhanging edges lead to a bouldery finish. Do it!


As you approach the wall from the trail, this is the first route you arrive at.

Love this route! It got super slimy near the end of the season, so the earlier the better! Sustained moves throughout.

I thought this route was great! Nothing too tweaky or crimpy, just fun enduro climbing.

Quite sustained with a crux at the top. Hard!
