It got the name as the FA was on Superbowl Sunday, but it's also the best route here. Go up the center of the prominent steep black tooth past two bolts to a two bolt anchor. You might want a piece for between the anchor and the last bolt and a nut low at the start, (it starts over a slot).

If it was twice as long it would deserve 3 stars for sure!


Quasi Sport. 2 bolts, 2 bolt anchor, but take a couple of med size pieces.

Odd bolt placement... The section to the anchor seems like it was just to extend the length, as it doesn't add much to the climb.

The anchor is where it is for two primary reasons

It was a comfortable place to stand to hand drill

The rock on the arete to the right looked to fragile to continue to the top without removing, intentionaly or not, large ammounts of rock.

Glad to see someone else has done it though.
