It starts off as easy climbing in a shallow, right-facing corner and then there is one steep move from a lieback to reach the final bolt.

The bottom half of the route has lots of loose rock. The top move is fun, but it is really a one move wonder that might not be worth climbing the choss to get to it.

The new guidebook calls this a 10a, but I thought it was noticeably harder than the other 10a routes nearby.


The route starts 15 feet to the left of Green Grenade.


7 bolts.

Not too bad of a route! Well-protected throughout the fun layback and the hard part comes last. Have fun!

Strenuous clip at the last bolt with poor feet. Considerably harder than Toxxxic Entertainment.
