The last route to go up in the Tea Room. The moves send the climber weaving left and right. Bolt line is straight, but the route must be solved with creative lateral movement.

I thought for the grade this route was a proud climb! I loved it and was terrified for half of it, then I got the good no hands rest and finished the last couple of bolts with a big smile. My favorite climb of this area and I think it's a tough 5.10c.

Really fun on-sight. Slightly pumpy on mostly good rock. Cerebral moves and very little chalk made this climb memorable! Thanks - I liked this one!

I believe this one to be more thought provoking, circuitous and sustained compared to its 10.c neighbor "Irish Car Bomb." A little on the hard end for Echo 5.10c and a little loose up top; but fun nonetheless.
