Start just left of Absurdland. Boulder up to a small right facing corner (crux 1) to a stance 15 feet up. Note that Lost Arrow piton mentioned in Grey Dick is missing. Stuff a horizontal with pro, then move up 30 feet to some crappy sideways nuts and bad micro cams. Continue up 10 more feet to a plant-filled horizontal (and good pro), then make a hard pull past the plants and up an easier left facing corner to the top.

Descent Options:

Rap Absurdland.

1 out of 5 stars Welcome to My Nightmare

Hard move off the ground, and scary move high up moving past some bogus gear. Worth doing...once. I would have bailed from 45 feet up, but I didn't trust the gear and the last good piece was at 15 feet. Glad I onsighted this, consequences would have sucked.

The rock seemed okay, but some of it had a veneer of crispy brown lichen and/or powdery green lichen.
