Todd with the redpoint!


A little overgrown from low traffic, slightly overhanging.


To the left of Flash, starts with the first three bolts of Flash, then moves to the left.


7 bolts (first three shared with Flash), Fixe anchors.

This is a Matt Wendling climb. His wife was the first ascender,
and they named it "Turn Me Loose". I learned the name "The Buddha"
from a kid named Thad who used to climb at PR a lot.

The finishing hold is covered with moss, so you don't want to
be climbing this when the rock is wet at all.

I think its a really fun climb, that is more overhanging than you would

I had nothing to do with the FA of this route, nor was I EVER married in Iowa. I left at the age of 19!

Steep jug haul. Fun climbing. Just as good as Virgin Lemonade. Surprised more people don't give it props.
