Description 

The start is not hard but can be unnerving as a slip might result in tumbling off the edge of a dropoff. Good holds lead up to the second bolt, then a bit tougher getting to the third and slightly runout. Blowing the 3rd clip would almost certainly be a ground fall unless you belayer jumped off the dropoff. This tempted me to give this route PG13.

The crux is above the 3rd bolt and is extremely thin. Good efficient sequences exist though.


Location 

Leftmost route on the backside of the main Lebowski rock. The rightmost route on the backside is Logjammin', the middle route is Face down in the Muck which has many features on it.


Protection 

3 bolts + 2 bolt anchor

Made the climb to the first bolt on this one... which was a little loose. Suggested maintenance update before leading it. Actually I really felt like every thing on that wall was suspect. The wall with Jesus and Gutterball... (West face?) was all great. No problems there.

I thought the actual crux was clipping the third bolt. If you blow the clip there is serious groundfall potential.

Jackie Treehorn draws a lot of water in this town.

You don't draw shit.

You won't deck if you blow the clip.. but make sure your belayer is not directly below you as I believed I nearly killed a man once with a greater than WWF quality double leg kick.

My only words of advice are as follows:
Make sure you pick a good belay spot. I blew the 3rd clip and took a good fall. My buddy belaying me also happened to trip and fall at the same time, causing me to hit the deck. He started to arrest my fall about 2ft above the deck but I still hit. Luckily I've had way worse falls from motocross than this and only a small bruise.

Also there is a big sidepull jug that I can tell has been used a lot that is not going to be good soon. Its super loose and has about 2" of play and is ready to break.
