Stick clip the first bolt, decipher the technical crux and finish up classic overhanging edges (5.11-) all the way to the anchors.


Right side of the south face and 40' right of Shalinqua.


5 bolts, 2 bolt anchor/rap (all 3/8")

For some reason I thought this was Frat Boys in the Gym?

Frat Boys in the Gym (5.11b TR) is listed as being on the south face of the Volcano but this is definitely not that route.

Need my very own enigma machine for this one, had trouble with a stopper move at bolt 1. From bolt 2 up very cool climbing with big moves on jugs.
