This route is located on the right side of the Sumo-esque face. A pretty engaging route through the first 4 bolts will lead you into an easier slab getting to the chains. This route like all the routes on this cliff is pretty prickly.

This route does not have rap rings!!! It's just two oversized bolts that you should not be lowered from. You could either rappel(we all do that anyway right?...umm no, we don't), or climb 2 more bolts up and to the right to the anchor of Nipple Extractor which does have rap rings for lowering.


From the approach trails and the left most route on the right side of the Sumo feature this is 4 routes to the right of that feature.


7 bolts + 2 bolts for rappelling.
