The crux is a big move (dyno?) to a large rounded jug. There is steep, thuggy climbing throughout the length of this route. Fun!


This is the tallest route and is centered between two harder routes at The Dungeon.
Look for rusty chain link "hangers".


Bolts to a two-bolt anchor.

It certainly is a thuggy route! BUT, it also requires a bit of body english on some moves. Some holds aren't quite as obvious as you may think. Fun moves, fun line.
Side note - It is a HUGE pain to clean.. Just have some sucker follow it for you instead
