Description 

No, not THAT Kinky Reggae in Clear Creek Canyon but a fun route that stays consistent at the grade for much of its modest length. This would make a great first pitch to link with Joy of My World (to make Kinky Joy?).

Start with an overhanging, right-leaning crack, and transition to some steep, chunky overlaps. Climb weird, awkward, fun moves all the way through to a final bolt on the slab above. At that point, either move left to the last bolt on Reggaeton for an easier finish or run it out straight up on the thin face.

Location 

This is the righthand route of the two that share the anchors just below the ramp.

Protection 

4 bolts (or 5) to a 2-bolt anchor (and a 2-bolt belay anchor at the base).
