The Ultimate Road Side Attraction! 

A pumpy, power-endurance route with HUGE MOVES! Starts overhung and stays overhung. Starts powerful and ends with a power mad struggle for a hidden hold.

A series of sick sequences that all have to be strung together with powerful, precise moves. Great goddamned gastones!

Start this bad-ass test piece with crimps and pockets to reach an overhung starting crack with sick jams and finger-locks. Get those feet up and power up to a series of layback moves that lead to a small pocket sequence, to a huge jug, to another sick layback. Get those feet up and grab the gigata-jug before you completely melt! Grab a quick rest and start the next technical sequence that starts with crimps, to a bar of soap hold, to the best goddamned gastone at Ice Box!

Lead into the next crux with a lock-off, two finger with your left and a sweet side pull with the right. A pinchy crux leads to a brief rest on a juggy feature below the last roof. The next series of moves will blow you away with the power and precision needed to finish the route up proper without completely melting off.



On the blonde wall behind the sick, overhung boulder and just up the hill to the right. Second route from the left. Starts on an obvious, thin flake just to the right of a crack system.


Take 10 quickdraws. Open Anchors
