Start 2' right of where the rope hangs from the anchors of "8 it Grand." This spot is the left end of the low mini-roof. Climb straight up and slant left to the anchors. Use "8 It Grand" to warmup, and use this for a stiff crimpy second warmup. DEC 9, 2014: Starting in the same general area as Ate It Bland, the line is now bolted (2) and goes straight up to a new set of chain anchors instead of veering left to Eight It Grand's anchors. Dubbed as "Kindling". - Karl Vochatzer

Two bolts plus independent chain anchors.

Use this line to fire yourself up for the harder routes to its left.

1 out of 5 stars Glorious Cheap Topropin' FA.

Just joking...I wasn't really trying for a cheap FA. I like "8 it Great" as a warmup. it's fast to get to by hiking to the dry creek just south of it. Warm up on it then hit the rest of Arbor Wall or Tit for Tom. So Dave and I checked out this TR line to see how to quickly extend the warmup. It's a little thin for a warmup, but the alternative is Mrs. Johnson (10a, very fingery).

Beta spoiler: it may feel much harder than 10c unless you fight your right foot high, once hands are on thin holds and your right foot doesn't have any other visible options.
