Climb a slab to a more vertical lighter-colored face. Stay left, near the arete and pull the roof at the left facing corner. Finish up a ramp to anchor.


This is the left-most route on the face left of the long hallway-like cave at Beer Wall.


Do it on top rope. Top out on Doo-Wah Woof (5.4) and walk over to the anchors to set up.

The route is perfectly leadable on gear. It takes plenty of tcus and cams smaller than #1 for the first half and nuts for the flake.

Don't know why this route is listed as a TR. It was flashed by Danny on lead, and as has been noted it takes good clean gear, primarily small and medium wires and cams as I recall. Belay from the convenient tree on top of the scenic buttress. This is one of the earliest routes completed at Bubba City.
