Description:

Bouldery moves. I think some topos have the rating for this route switched with "Grinch". A good hold broke at the top, it now has a sustained finish. 5.10 climbing to the second bolt followed by a V1 from bolts 2-3, followed by a V5 to the top. This excellent route deserves more traffic, get on it and help clean the holds!

3 out of 5 stars Overshadowed

This route get's overshadowed by it's neighbors Grinch, and Yertle the Turtle. It's unfortunate because it's not too bad of a climb. Unfortunately since no one ever gets on it there is very little beta to be had, and basically no chalk. Also many of the pockets and holds are quite dirty and the top gets dirty pretty easily. I actually cleaned off all the holds about a month ago when I started working on this and today when I sent the top was dirty again as were several of the holds. Unfortunate.

In terms of the climbing itself it really isn't too bad, similar in style to Grinch but harder and more sustained bouldering in my opinion.
