Description:

Around the right from Mr. Bungle and Maypop as the under cut start fades away is a short face that requires you to use the roof of the undercut to get started. Lots of small pockets, but don't drift too far left or you risk a big swing back to the bolt line if you fall.

4 out of 5 stars interesting climb, over before you know it

I've seen some hate for this route around, which I don't understand. Fun bouldery start with tons of deep pockets (and some not so deep) to choose from, then it gets easier up into some really cool-looking weathered rock patterns that provide lots of solid full-pad flat holds. Might be my favorite 9 so far.
