Description 

a good sport lead, although when first done it probably went up on gear (given the 5.10b TR guidebook rating), the face has since been bolted. The guide suggests to layback off the upper crack of Buzz Junky, but the bolts make it possible to aviod this altogether via some thin crimps and lousy feet, adding some spice and maybe a letter grade or so to the route.


Location 

down @ the Sports Crag, uses the arete to the left and moves across the face. Located right next door to Buzz Junky


Protection 

4 bolts to coldshuts
