The Puzzle Box's classic testpiece. Shares a start with Puffer Fish, on the bulging skirt near the middle of the roof. From the skirt, reach both hands out to the rail of sloping huecos, then bring your feet up to the roof and start heading left. At the end of the rail, pull to a big sloping undercling, which is matched with much difficulty (crux). Take a breath and reach for two round pockets, then finish with big slaps out the steep nose to a rockover topout. Long and sustained, with seriously entertaining moves on flawless rock.

Variations: Cosmic Bicycle (V8) starts matched at the sloping undercling and finishes out the nose. Huffelupagus (V10) climbs Cosmic Tricycle to the two round pockets, then continues heading left to join the large sloping hueco at the end of The Hermit.


Start near the middle of the roof at the obvious bulging skirt (same as Puffer Fish) and head left.


A few pads and spotters, particularly for the ending which has a poor landing.
