  • Description 

    This climb is fun and lets you avoid the 12b crux on the route True Comedian if you do not wish to climb that hard. The crux is an 11a move at the last bolt before the anchors. There is a crack to the right to layback before the crux. The crux can be done either to the left or the right by the last bolt.


    This climb clips the first bolt on The Far Side and the first bolt on Tears of a Clown before moving upward on 4 bolts to the top. These four bolts are bolts on the route True Comedian. The climb starts as a upward traverse from left to right.


    6 bolts to a two bolt anchor.

    I did this route again today, and I still think the crux is at the top. There are thin moves below though.
