3 out of 5 stars *

This, Flakey Tigress, and El Primero need to be moved to Serpents Wall.

4 out of 5 stars Nowadays I like to lead this barefoot.

Bolts are close but so are the trees. Use a compitent belayer and back off (downclimb) if you can't figure out the anchor clip. PG rated.

One of my favorate warmups (followed by El Primero if you wire it) to do any projecting north or back in the Sex Canyon.

4 out of 5 stars going to be a well climbed route

Once the word is out, the newbies will hit this one.

I rated it 5.8 due to no move being as difficult as the hardest moves on the 5.9 Dead Cats Wall climbs.

Fall 2010: The last 6 months have proven that this is now a very popular wall with the addition of this climb and 2 others next to it. Good job in opening up a new section of good climbing for entry level climbers away from Dead Cats.
