This is one of the taller climbs. A run out to the first clip leads to easier climbing, a hollow flake at the top can be avoided by staying on a more direct line into the dihedral at the top. It is still cleaning up, so wear a helmet. This route and Wasted Asparagus end below a house, so be quiet or use hand signals.


It is to the left of Wasted Asparagus. It is the first route one encounters when heading to the right under the fence.


8 or more bolts to chains.

Be careful of bees around the wet area.

The first ascent credit on this goes to Lou Martinell. He must have done it somewhere in the late '90s or early '00s. He has a name for it too, but I am not sure on that.
