Goodbye Cruel World. Hello pumped forearms.


The clean, black left-facing corner just opposite the Schoolmaster.


A few 0.5 Camalots and blue TCU's, but mostly 0.4 Camalots/yellow TCU's (6 or 7 will sew it up).

This is the best climb I've done at The Wall. I found the big piece recommended to be unnecessary. Light is right on this awesome route.

Totally amazing climb. You will learn if you have your first knuckle layback technique down or not.

Superb shortie route. I found 4-5 orange metolius protected the crack above the rest, while yellow were slightly tipped.

This route is too locker to be 5.12.....i sent it onsight after 7 other pitches.....continous but more like 11c....Dancing Queen is harder for sure...great, doable OW though

With good man-size fingers and a little stemming it feels easier than 12-, still a pump fest.
