The farthest left line at the Scorched Earth, this perplexing route is a good lesson in funk. A fairly easy start leads to a baffling and just plain odd crux. Despite it's off-balance movement and wealth of insecurity, this climb still remains popular. If you hop on this climb first, a majority of the routes after this will feel pretty straight forward.


Follow the trail from the parking lot to the base of the main wall, head left and up a small hill into a nook. This will be the last route on your left.


Nine bolts to an anchor.

This route tends to inspire a bit of a love-hate reaction. I've seen people convinced that it requires a dyno, while others make it through with smooth, balancy moves. Definitely a fun climb either way.
