This route is a blast! Start on an obvious jug, with an obvious foot, and work up the route using pretty wild moves. I believe the crux is latching the small hold coming off the horizontalsideunderclings. I found that topping out to the right is a good secure way to go.


On the right wall in the middle, directly to the right where it says that Robyn & Wayne.


Pads and a spotter.

Thanks for posting this route. I had a blast climbing it back in 2010. Too bad it was the only decent problem I could find in a 30+ mile radius!

First climbed here in 2000, this problem was one of the first that we put up. Called it the Horse Head route at V2. To the right of this is Tiger vs. Crane (also V2) that has a V5 campus start called Wu-Tang Clan Ain't Nothing to Fuck With.
