Myself on the route. right at the beginning of the...


A sustained, difficult to read journey up a dimpled face in a prominent black streak. At the stiff end of the grade.

At the steep wall above the belay and make a difficult move over a bulge onto another ledge.
Weave a bit left then right to the dimpled face.
Go straight up the sustained face to where the angle eases then run it out to join the final move of Brazilian to the fixed anchor. 110'

Two double rope raps to the ground.


At the fixed anchor on the Belly Button Ledge. This is accessed by climbing Brazilian or Stop Making sense. It's worth noting that you can rap from the top of Groovitational Pull as well.

What a puzzle, sitting on the second belay for 'Stop making sense' I decided I'd hop on this without knowing what it was, just thought it looked cool. It definitely was. But man those dimples are a vast ocean on that wall. Looked like there could be bolt line 5 feet to either side of me. Hopefully I can go back and get it clean next time. Hard to read but truly unique climbing.
