Some big, fun moves on this little number. Februar...


The sustained, slightly overhanging nature of this shortie route will keep you wide awake.
Sustained moves on generally good holds on steep rock keep you pumped as you aim for not-quite-as-good-as-they-look scoops and dishes on the steep face to a neat little tufa-like pinch. Finish on lower-angle, licheny rock past one more bolt to the anchors.

Short and full value. Likely 11+ or so for taller climbers. A bit more difficult for shorties.


The center route at the Sleeper. Shares anchors with Nocturnal Urinator to the right.


Six bolts to chains with steel lowering biners

The obvious hold for making the clip above and left of the second bolt exploded on me yesterday. There is still a great hold a little deeper on the same feature, but it's not as obvious. I don't think it really changes the difficulty of the route though.

Fun, challenging route for those of us pushing into this grade.
