A classic climb with a classic finish- usually a long fall. I imagine that this climb has seen more staring-the-bolt-in-the-face swearing than any other route in the area.
Just left of Fuzzy Undercling, a line of large pockets rises up and right from the ground, becoming smaller and smaller towards the anchors. Waste no time and no rests getting there for success.


From the left branch of the approach trail you first encounter the "triplet" climbs,Sunshine, Moonbeam, and Into the Light. While these are at your right shoulder you can look further on to the routes on a massive overhanging buttress. These are (from right to left) Fuzzy Undercling, Tissue Tiger, Gung Ho, and Reliquary. To the right of these there is a huge, wide inset, which just within and on the left side of which there is a bolted slab, Possum Lips.


5 stainless steel glue-in bolts to a bolted anchor.

Sure you're thinking of the right route...I don't remember any no hands on this route???

Fuzzy undercling has the no hands rest.

This felt like the hardest route on the wall, the crux of this one is solid. Clipping the last bolt shouldn't be a problem as there are huge jugs just above it, not a good one to try to clip early.

Maybe Kristoffer is referring to the protruding rock 1/2 way up and slightly right. It might be possible to sit on it. I certainly didn't attempt to get a no-hands there though.

this climbs got my number...a bunch of whips on the crux and I still couldn't get it! Any beta for going off those 2 pockets and eventually to the flake at the last bolt?

If you're tall, undercling/side pull the clipping jug before the crux, match the pockets, then hod on for dear life and you've bagged it. Just don't lose your head going to the anchors.

I found the no hands rest as well. A solid knee bar that not only allowed me to go no hands, but got me halfway through the crux without even having to pull. Felt rather soft with this beta, but very fun!
