Great line with sinker jugs to the first anchor (10d)

This route description leaves a little to be desired.

this climb is super classic and needs a route description. Climb slightly overhanging rock on jugs to a crux bulge at the top. 4 stars

This is one of those routes that makes you wonder how such a perfect sequence of holds for a human being could occur naturally. Steep rock, big pockets, fun powerful moves... CLASSIC!

The 11a is 10 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor. There is also a 2 bolt anchor a bit to your left after bolt 7 or 8 just before you pull the bulge. If you stop at that anchor, it's easier -- 10d. The first bolt and the bulge were the cruxes for me. Big moves on big holds in between. I was thinking your exact thoughts while climbing, Kenan!

The stack of blocks that are at the base of this climb have collapsed. This happened on the day we arrived (July 2, 2017), prior to roping up. Since I haven't climbed this before I don't know how it affects the route, but I thought getting to the first bolt was significantly harder than 10d, and harder than any 11a we climbed while at Ten Sleep. So, I guess this is a condition report in case this might be at your level and you don't have a stick clip? Also, the belay is gnarly now.

The start is much harder than 11a. At least 11d now.

As of Aug. 25th, 2017, this route has presumably changed since the printing of the Punk Rock edition of Aaron Huey's guidebook. The sequence up to the first bolt feels like it clocks in around V3/4, and is much more difficult than the advertised crux at the upper bulge. Not sure if this was always the case or holds have changed, but a stick clip is recommended. Fortunately, there's a nice stack of them near the start of Tangerine Fat Explosion. enjoy!

I might be a Whiny Baby writing this but the first move was definitely an 11+ boulder problem at 5'8 (not a good warm up). My boyfriend is 6'2", and could reach past the hard start to the good holds... with approach shoes. The top is likely 10- climbing and very fun.
