Didn't save enough to clip the anchors.


Classic Red climbing on a slightly overhanging face that will get you pumping all the way to the top. Work through the vertical section at the bottom of the climb on a series of pockets and crimpers to gain the clipping jug just to the right of the last bolt. You need to save enough energy to get through the last overhanging section on smallish horizontal iron rails or you'll end up going for a big ride.


This route is located on the right hand side of the first major, orange face that you encounter after the approach trail meets the Funk Rock City cliff line. It begins on top of a small pedestal on the right side of the wall and to the left of a large tree that provides shade for upper sections of the route.

After finally finding the area, hopped on this thinking it was Orange Juice. After nearly on sighting I thought it was the softest route ever until realizing it was the Infidel. .11d seems about right, pumpy moves with the crux at the anchors. Charge the anchors, and if you dork it take a massive/safe/ fun ride!
