BETA PHOTO: Romper Room Right
This climb goes up the left side of the steep, rectangular patch of black rock in the Romper Room Area. Finger cracks, varnished plates and large jug holds bring you to the top. Well protected. Rappel from a two bolt anchor with one 60m rope. This is a good climb for the beginner leader.

This is a fun lead, more interesting to me than the more popular Romper Room to the right. Don't think I'd call it a good beginner lead, though; some sections didn't seem 5.6-easy to me.

Agreed - not really a good opener for a first 5.6 trad lead. As of 4/17/10 there's a jammed cam about 20 feet up, left very recently it seemed, either same day, or day before.

Doobie dance was my first trad lead. Near the top I remember threading my largest nut through two holes in a bomber flake!

Did this last Friday; agree with a couple of the previous comments. Some sections seemed a little harder than 5.6ish --- I would not recommend this as a first trad lead.

There is a pretty cool finger crack 2/3 the way up, which could make the climb tougher if you have big hands. Otherwise, lots of foot placements.
