Route is immediately left of Dyno Monkey. Starts with a neat boulder problem on some big holds that can be solved using a heel hook or an awkward mantle. The first move to a right hand pocket is height dependent--would be much harder if you are under 6'. The rest of the climb involves some nasty thrashing up an awkward crack, and the anchors are way off to the right and hard to clip. Would be a bomb if not for the first sequence. The other climbs on the Visor are much better.


5 bolts + 2 Fixe ring anchors.

Not a bad route although overbolted a little much. The first move is a little height dependant, but being 5'8" just meant you made one other move, nothing harder than 11b. The top of the route can be eased with a right hand reaching far inside the crack, feet high and a great layback undercling, you can almost reach anchors from here, just move up the crack. A decent little route with no obvious manufactured holds ? 1 star.

These routes blur the line between toproping and leading. Wuddajoke.
