Description:

Between Grumpy After Eight and KGB. Route ascends directly below then left of a double roof system. A fun and varied line that involves stemming, chimney, and face climbing. Might seem more difficult for those who primarily climb face routes. Bolted 10-03

Descent Options:

60m rope

3 out of 5 stars Fun chimney

The transition from the chimney is interesting. Pulling the final overhanging roof to the chains was probable not the easiest way to do it, but it was fun.

5 out of 5 stars Super fun route

This is a super exposed fun route that has some interesting parts. The only part that seemed sketchy is the clip in the chimney. It seemed to me it needs to be moved closer by about a foot or so. Other then that it seemed solid and was very fun.

4 out of 5 stars Little bit of everything

Fun climb, I remember one of the bolts being a bit spicy to clip. Something along the lines of if "I miss this I'm hitting that ledge really hard"
