Description 

Thought I would add this as Dinkus and Chaos are on here. I would say that this is the worst of the three routes. Lots of hollow gear placement on the first pitch (including the belay) and there is only one bolt on the first pitch instead of two as the guide book suggests

Location 

In between Dinkus Dog and Chaos Out Of Control. Rap Chaos with 2 60s to descend.

Protection 

Standard Looking Glass rack. One bolt on P.1

I've led this one a couple of times back in the day. Getting established on this route is pretty heady but double ropes really help. Once you're into to the good gear the climbing is as good as Dinkus only harder. Not as difficult as Ciaos though.

FA. was Doc Bayne and Corrine Web. The name was derived because Doc took multiple falls and yanking up Corrine who shouted up that Doc you need a parachute!
