A nickname (or maybe alternate name) for this route is "Useless Limbs." As you first move up towards the dike, your legs feel useless. Later, your arms feel useless. A hand crack leads to a horizontal crack and then to a stance with your hands on the dike. Work your arms and get up onto the dike. Work your legs and do a balancy traverse up and right to the top. It's an exciting route.


Below EBGB's are three right-slanting dikes. The leftmost one is Fast Lane. The center one is Sinner's Swing.


three bolts and gear: thin to hand size
