Start right of the bolts and climb easy terrain to an nice juggy rest.

After that, enter the state of perplexity while moving through a sea of sharp, hiding crimps.

Finish on an enjoyable, victory-lap slab.


Walk uphill to the right from the big Digitalis/Street Cleaner dihedral. Go past a bunch of obscure routes and one big tree right against the wall to a nice belay platform.


Lots of bolts, sport anchor.

This long-overlooked sorta-gem was cleaned up and partially re-bolted (new crux bolts, new anchors) in April 2016. It now makes a nice complement to Lay of the Land and Digitalis on the 12-minus tour.

It's easy to pre-hang draws on this by climbing Bioclimatic Quandary. If you choose this option, bring a cam or 2 to avoid having to solo the easy dihedral on that route.

It's nowhere near as bad a Brittany says!
