4 out of 5 stars Got some good beta from Dave midclimb.

The name of this route is so appropo. After clipping the last bolt before the anchors comes the crux. If you don't step right onto some nice ledges (making the route into a 5.10 with a different name) then the way up lies in discovering two extremely thin hands, and two extremely thin feet. Place the hands, step up with a foot, then putting a lot of faith in those upper three contact points, you can try to raise the last foot. When you are on these four contact points it seems as if the only way you could be sticking to the wall is if your fingers and feet were covalently bonded to it (e.g. superglued to it). Now that you have all four limbs coordinated and covalently bonded, you can let go with one, and snatch for a higher hold. I really like the name of this route! It's a fun, and pretty safe route too, except possibly clipping the anchors if you're short.
