This route turns a roof and a bulge then continues up a gray face to a very cool dihedral. It finishes with a great deal of air beneath your feet. The start is stout and devious as is the second bulge. The holds above the bulge are hard to find which which might makes this more fun to climb as a redpoint than an onsight. It is easy to miss the jog left to the finish of this climb. A bolt for Prymal Instinct is more obvious after you turn the bulge but staying left gives you a good finish, so I suggest staying left.


Starts off a narrow three foot by three foot boulder below a 5 foot roof about 10 feet off the ground.

Like its brother Primal Instinct, Pre-op Therapy also has a "Mr. Clean" rest opportunity, which will either plaster a smile across your face or increase the dizzying, exposure-inducing vertigo.
