My guess is that this route was named either for the shape of the majority of holds comprising the crux section or one’'s forearms as he or she puzzles through which mound to grab next. From the base, this route looks quite unappealing, but believe it or not, it actually is a two-star route once past the choss-and-guano-fest that characterizes the terrain protected by the first four bolts (so my star rating doesn't take that into account; you just have to believe). It’'s a well-bolted line, with a unique crux that, IMO, is bona-fide 12a to on-sight. Originally posted by Tosser on in 2003.


See the post for Crash Test Dummies (the routes share the first four bolts).


12 draws. The route ends at Crash Test Dummies’' chains.
