Every move counts on this steep little route, with a bouldery start and a pumpy finish over the roof. Start from a stance on the big block to the right. This is a great introduction to the type of climbing on The Professor.


Located to the right of The Professor


4 bolts and a cam placement between the 3rd and 4th bolts. A yellow TCU is perfect but anything up to 2" should work well. Chain anchors

This is a lot of fun. Climbs like a nice v4 + a redpoint crux. Great warmup for The Professor.
