Thin crimping past the first bolt leads to a powerful traverse with nonexistent feet on the face. Clip the second bolt and manage the gymnastic slopers to gain a stance about bolt level. Climb through the bulge ( the most comitting part of the route ) to the next horizontal. Positive holds, rests, and three more bolts see you through the rest of the overhanging "jugline".

This route combines thin crimping, slopy bouldering moves, with excellent overhanging moves. Very enjoyable and very doable for the grade.


5 bolts to a two bolt anchor.

The lieback moves past the second bolt are, as noted, somewhat committing but higher the pro is quite generous. Excellent steep climbing for those who are sick to death of slab paddling up dummy domes.

Also called Hot Legs Contest! During the time Paul was drilling this on lead. We had two beautiful women w/ us sunbathing topless on the rock below. Florence and another Doll! I redpointed it after his first lead! Back in the day! Peace Paul! Still climbing Florence?
