4 out of 5 stars Tricky climb

The crux move is tricky and committing.

4 out of 5 stars nice addition to the small roof on Dr Seuss Wall

thin and balanced moves on the lower section to some power moves off of crimps to jugs, then feet up on thin edges to some additional good holds. A good solid climb for it's short distance. I just missed the onsite and took a good fall above the roof.

5 out of 5 stars first ascent, after about 9 and 2/3rds tries

Easier than Yertle by a couple clicks. Comparable to Bongo Fury, maybe slightly less power but a longer crux sequence = 11c. Dr. Seuss Wall has produced great routes.

I like the crux beta. Beta spoiler: right hand on left of two crimps above roof, left of last bolt. Left foot in the big juggy dish under roof; dropknee, so left hand can reach the high flat jug. Right hand sidepull just under that. Feet stem just above the roof. Right hand bumps up on a series of marginal holds to gnar jugs. Left foot has to move up during that series. Enjoy!
