This is a very fun and worthwhile variation. You climb past the first bolt on “Climbing for Punishment” and then a clip a new bolt to the left, and then continue to traverse left into the top section of “Doctor Octopus”. This route clocks in at about 5.11c with the crux at the very top. A quality route.

Descent Options:

rap or lower off of anchors.

4 out of 5 stars Nice route

This is a good route, but is shouldn't be under estimated. The top moves are hard. Solid at the grade.
