The crux is probably the first overhang off the ground. Most of climb is easy with big holds. Several loose blocks were removed, so expect some dirt. Help out and bring a brush.


It is 20 feet right of Bicolored Python Rock Snake.


9 bolts to 2-bolt anchor with chains shared with Elephant's Child.

This climb is fun and would make a good warm-up. I thought the start was more difficult than Elephant's Child to the right. There is some dirt in places but nothing too bad.

Juggiest route I've ever climbed outdoors, just truly massive holds the whole way up. An easy, enjoyable warm-up, but, in no universe is the start 5.6, more like 5.8, unless I just completely missed the intended line. It can be skipped though, if you want, by scrambling up several feet left of the line proper.
