A little contrived, but worth 10 minutes if doing Frat Boy and you’ve brought the cams. Starting from the ledge with the cedar tree, climb up to a left diagonalling handcrack, plug in a good cam, then climb the line of bolts above that trend right initially then back left at a large horizontal break. Finish by surmounting a short but juggy overhang above the break to chains


See Party Girl, and the phototopo on the main page.


A 2-3 inch cam (No. 2 Camalot should work) for the handcrack, five draws for the route and two more for the chains, and maybe a 1/2 inch cam for the horizontal break if you want to protect it better than Momentum.

No. 2 camalot a little saggy, and seemed a bit to tight for a 3 camalot but the bolt's not too far, and terrain is pretty easy.
