Description 

Remember the old cartoon short? Stop to smell the flowers and you might just get stomped. Stunning jug-haul with a dyno in the middle. Starts with a nice roof, too. Between this route and Kraken is Mike Wazowski (of Monsters Inc.).

Location 

Just right of the chimney at the downstream end of the wall. Marked by a fixed chain half way up.

Protection 

10 bolts total with one chain draw

There is no need to dyno on this route, and you might want to sitdown and smell the flowers in the middle. Fun but easier movement above the crux section.

At 6'5", I felt the standard beta of climbing on holds to the left of the fixed chain at the crux didn't work for me at all--way too scrunchy. It took some time and concerted effort but I managed some really fun tall-guy-beta that uses holds (and a kneebar) to the right of the chain draw to finally put it all together. Super fun route!
