Hard start through second bolt then pretty easy the rest of the way. Definitely the easiest of the three 5.9+ climbs on this wall. A tall person can pretty easily clip the first bolt from the ground.


Third route from left end of Wall of Waltzing Witches, the middle one of three close climbs.


Bolts & Chains.

I'm not very tall (5'4'') and I clipped the first bolt from the ground.

Start is much harder than the rest of the route, mainly due to tough clipping stances and the first two bolts presenting a risk of decking. Afterward though it climbs into easier and super fun blocky jugs and cracks.

Probably a 3 star 5.7 or 5.8 if you could skip the first 10 feet. 30 feet of fun, continuous jug-hauling after that. I would have been smiling the whole way if I wasn't trying to hack up a fly that flew into my mouth
