BETA PHOTO: "Happy Feet" ascends the face to the right of the ...
Start on a THIN crimp and pull up (crux) to balancy moves on cool features. The line wanders a bit, so don't think "straight up." The side wall on the right is in for the start and if you get to the Toe Jams crack, you've gone to far left. This line was probably soloed years ago, and in fact a Toe Jams variation exits the crack half way and finishes on the upper slab of Happy Feet. The bolts were added in the summer of 2011 after the line got a good cleaning. Enjoy.
This is the slab line just right of Toe Jams, on the Main Wall, just left of an easy gully. Standing on a dirt ledge 8 feet up from the actual ground, look for a thin, crescent moon shaped crimp (for your right hand).
3 bolts to rings.

The first move is pretty stiff. Maybe harder than 5.8.

A Cape Ann sandbag? The start was easy the first day I did it... though it has spit me off plenty of times after! I always prefer grading a bit low, until a others have chimed in, but 5.9 is legal in my book.

Still have never gotten this line. Shenanigans on 5.8.
