Description:

Continue left of Do the Right Thing a bit and locate a rather taller section with many roofs. DC Comics is the first of two routes here and starts right of the dirty corner. Route has two variations splitting about half way up with one viable spot for a bailout if the final roof tiers are too daunting.

5 out of 5 stars Okay

Pretty decent little sport route. Be sure to notice the piece of fixed pro beneath the first bolt (piton in horizontal just below bulge), otherwise its a pretty decent (20 ft.) runout to the first bolt. If you don't like Spiderman or Shock the Monkey, you won't like this one. Route splits into three separate routes after 3rd bolt. Left is hardest (10d/11a), middle is middle (10b/c), and staying right to chain anchors is easiest (10a). Pumpy, extremely overhung finish on gigantic jugs.
