Nate Groovin (5.11d) at Birdsboro, PA. April 2012....

Description 

Angles up and right to a good rest below a short, left-facing corner. Clip the bolt on the face left of the corner, not the old one on the right side of it. Technical crux is getting up this corner to the good holds above (and a bolt near the top of the corner).

From there head out right on good hands. Head up before working back left near the top. The upper section has good holds and fun moves - don't get pumped out before the anchors.

I found the anchors tricky to clip, but maybe I'm missing something or was just too pumped.

Location 

On the left side of the big wall, right of Laid Back... and Twisted Sister.

Protection 

Bolts (9, plus anchors)

One of the best at the crag. Great moves all the way.
