Description 

This is a pretty okay route that can be done if you have run out of other stuff in the 11+ or 12- range. Find Jam and Jelly. Go to the right of that maybe 15 feet and find a line of bolts that diverges into 3 upper lines. Do the Right Thing is the right hand line. Go figure. It starts on Chinese Freedom and after the crux, traverses right on a series of cool huecos with bad feet, then find a small edge, situate your feet, and huck for the good ledge. Up from there.

Strong people use this as a warm up and a way to get a TR on Paradigm Shift. I actually didn't think it was any harder than Chinese, but will leave the rating at 12a if only for historical sake.

Protection 

Bolts. Please use your own gear for top rope. Please bring an extra biner and if the ones up top look bad or don't easily clip or shut, please replace it. It's good karma.

A key foothold broke when I was doing this, making it a fair bit harder, though 12a is probably right now. A distraction of a climb compared to chinese freedom, but a good way to put draws on paradigm shift.

Fun, horizontal moves that rarely get done, but short people have a crazy time with this climb...
