Lance makes the face.

This one is sick! 

They say that cheaters never win. That is a bunch of hooey. Just look at Lance Armstrong, Alex Rodriguez, and the list goes on and on. They may have all cheated because they were roid strong...but they still won...a lot.

This route has a lot of potential cheating on it...but you still have to be roid strong to git r' dun! Can't do the direct start? Use a crack. Can't handle all the sick, tiny pockets and crimps? Cheat by getting great side-pulls in a right hand flaky seam.

A lot of potentially hard moves on tiny holds can be can be made easier by manipulating the system a bit. However, at some point, the buck has to stop somewhere and you will end up facing the music at a stopper crux that requires you to use a fingerlock just right.

Unlock the secret of the fingerlock and grab even more secretive holds that pump you like a syringe right up until a savior jug in the roof that leads to thuggy climbing to the anchors.

Be sure to juice yourself up before getting on this one!


First route on the Back Burner Wall if approached by moving turning right at The Crossroads and walking towards The Bradyism Wall.


10 quick draws and a stick clip for the last bolt.
