Description 

Nice face climb on the rightside of School Room #2. It is fairly sustained and has tricky moves at the start, above 1st pin and getting to the anchor. Climb trends to the right and is well protected with 6 fixed pieces.

This climb was not in Eric B's "Wall Street to the SR Swell" guide book so if anyone has the real name, grade and 1st ascent info, please provide it.


Location 

12' right of "Grama and the Green Suede Shoes" and 25' left of Lacto Mangulation


Protection 

6 bolts/driled pins to rap anchors

tough start and it keeps you thinking despite being slabby. Cool mix of holds from the occasional jug to tiny tiny pockets.

Good route. Beware the first bolt, which is actually a piton. Some cruxy moves in the first 20 feet but you wouldn't want to whip on that piton. There is another piton higher up, maybe the 4th or 5th bolt, watch out!

Those angles are just fine! Don't encourage the epoxy madman to return to Moab and ruin another route like he/she did with Seibernetics a few years back.
