The exciting finishing moves of Humpty Dumpty.


Climb start just right of the water streaks through several overhangs passing "the block that should not be" on your left. Continue up the face to the final overhangs. Finishes at the chains at the lip.


4th bolted line from left


7 bolts, lower from chain/biner at lip.

The "block that should not be" is now that block that isn't! Fell on Nov 22nd. No injuries. Grade is now bumped up a bit.

We added a second carabiner at the lip to lower off.

Super fun, burly crux pulling over the first roof's lip. Not much easier than the neighboring 11's and 12's, and better rock quality throughout. I hear that wasn't always the case, though... it might be a good idea to make sure the area below is clear of folks, dogs, etc.

This is one of the more difficult lines known for an intense roof. If there's a lot of snow-melt or rain, water comes through the lower portion of the climb.

The description above is actually of the second line right of Firefly/Good Day to Die. But the grades seem accurate as currently listed -- pulling the body-length roof on this felt quite a bit harder than any of the moves on the line to its left. Might feel a little easier for a gunks regular, though.
