Off the Couch has fun face climbing on some crimpers and jugs. It is a good warmup for harder routes in the area.


This is the second furthest left route at The Armory, just right of Handicapable.


6 draws, 2 bolt anchor.

This is a nice little route, not as easy as it looks. Should clean up nicely with traffic.

I'll echo Jay's comments that this is a great "little" route and a decent warm-up for the Armory area. I wish it were a little longer but nonetheless, there is great hold variety, and it's steep enough to require one to actually hang on a little bit.

FINALLY. This is THE warm-up for the Armory area. Great fun. Great movement.
