I avoided this route for years because of its funkous name, but it actually climbes quite nicely and is a good addition to the Project Wall.

Originally bolted in a aid solo frenzy in one afternoon by Duane Raleigh, this route collected cobwebs for a few years until George Squibb came along and freed it. It is one route left of Simply Read, and goes into Simply Read at the last bolt, sharing the same anchors.

Start with the second bolt pre-clipped (it would be nice to move this for free climbing) and bust a funky boulder problem to good holds under a roof. Stick in those knees, dyno high and left then work up flakes to a good jug. A final, complex boulder problem over the crux lip leads to a decent shake and some 12a getting up to the anchors.


10-12 draws.

Really hard to keep the kneebar in at the crux. Very frustrating route.
