This was previously listed as Backslap, which was an old toprope line on this wall. Sex Wax is the real name. The crux is basically a V5/6 boulder problem from the ground to the 2nd bolt on really thin holds. There's one 5.10 move after that with 5.8 jugs to the anchors.

2 out of 5 stars Crux is before the first bolt

Not sustained. Fun crux to jug bash on dirty holds.

Really hard at the bottom- possibly 12c, but the FA proposed 12b. Really close the night before then came back to finish up.
