Description:

To the right of Hawaiian noises, this route has a bold start if you don't start from the bottom, but starting from the block makes it a low 10 climb. There's a 3/8 bolt to protect the traverse from the block, but Jan 2003 it was missing the hanger. That traverse is easy, though poorly protected.

5 out of 5 stars Terranean Tango from the boulder is great!

Like a lot of other folks, I started this off the boulder to the right of POD. Some of the moves sliding to the right and the left were a little hairy, but it was pretty smooth sailing with no surprises throughout.

I highly recommend that belayers anchor themselves to the boulder.. please take it from experience that this is a VERY GOOD IDEA!!

4 out of 5 stars Did 10a starting from the boulder

Stepping onto the climb is an interesting feeling. Most of the climbing was easy though, felt like a 9. I seconded, leader was not crazy about the 10-12 foot runout after the 2nd bolt.
