Approximate line....


This pitch lies above Squid Kid. It may be reachable from Rad Lad, 11d. This can be used to make a 2 (11a) or 3 (11c?) pitch short, sport link-up. The crux lies around the 6th bolt involving sort of a gaston-like thing. There is another fun move up a bit higher where you have to decide on moving out right or staying on the face ('arder). It does have a feeling like a bunch of lower-end boulder problems stacked on top of each other.

There is a 2 bolt anchor on the same ledge as the top of the pitch out to the left.

You can rap with 2 60m ropes to the ground.


This is ~120 feet up, above Squid Kid.


9 bolts, 2 bolt anchor.

Fun route but lacks the continuity of climbing like Squid Kid does. Felt like two separate boulder problems.
