Description:

It is often said that "these are the biggest jugs you will ever fall off of". This route is sustained, overhung climbing. Two tough moves above the second bolt lead to easier climbing until the lip. Here are the real tough moves. Save your energy and bring some body tension! Fun, bouldery route. Has a second pitch too but the anchor has been chopped.
