Rob Springer on the fun start, before the gnarline...

Description 

Yo Johnny Kovak!

We thought this was pretty good, but then everyone thinks his child is beautiful.

Starts with about 30' of "normal climbing", liebacking a shallow RF corner, then plugging some good hands before it widens. A section of cups is followed by fists and wider to the anchors. The occasional foothold makes the climbing relatively enjoyable for those with less than gorilla size mitts.


Location 

This climb is in the no man's land between Fin and Public Service Wall. From Third World Lover, walk left/north for three to four minutes. The climb is about 50' south of the first trees encountered since TWL and starts with a nice 12' RF corner that ends at a pod. (Note that the trees mark the start of an undocumented multipitch 10+ called The Long Way Home.) There is an undocumented line 5' right of F.I.S.T. (~60', 5.9, 1*)


Protection 

Camalots: 1 ea .75; 2 ea .5, #1; 3 ea #2, 4 ea #3, #4.

we ran into this route on our way to the public service wall. the plaque was right between the two cracks. we could see an anchor for the right hand crack, but we couldn't see the anchor for the left hand crack. we ended up doing the right hand one. maybe next time..

This route is on Public Service Wall; the right end.

Quality route. Bring 3.5 and 4 camolots.
