Description:

One of the best routes in the cave. The ending has both a dynamic and static variation; but a hold broke a while back, making the static way harder.

4 out of 5 stars Body Wax

Fun, short, bouldery route that's really not my style but still fun. Regarding the safety rating, just have a good belayer and don't blow the clips and you'll be fine. A friend gave me some excellent short person beta that I really like. It likely makes it a bit harder but it fits me better.

I didn't get the top-out because it was soaking wet.

2 Nov 13: Sent with the top-out. It was still wet and the right hand felt like sticking your fingers in a bowl of pudding but I wasn't as pumped as the time before and was able to get to the cave to find a huge snake skin in there. Kind of cool but kind of gross (the snake skin and the pudding hold I suppose).
