Much more fun than the dark uninviting corner suggests. Bouldery moves between good rests. Crux is right after you clip the second bolt. Then easier climbing to shared anchor with Brain Cramps.


Same start as Barfly Blues, then follow the corner/crack, passing the roof on the right side.


I think I used a .75 C4, a tricam and a #3 C4 before the bolts and a smaller cam after the bolts. Optional: the older 1/4'' bolts seem to be in good condition but could be easily backed up by a #5 C4.

I thought it was more fun than Public Intoxication although a little less sustained.
