A high-stepping start on big holds leads to a puzzling, overhanging bulge.

Wide stemming may make it more difficult for the vertically- or elastically-challenged.

Watch out for the wash basin (you'll know it when you find it).


Head left up the trail past a bolted line on the left of a roof (which is Drunken Midget).

This route is the last bolted line before the light gray-colored, dirty-looking bit with two bolted lines which lie to the right of the enormous roof.


4 bolts and anchors.

This is currently marked at the base with "9+" in chalk. I thought it was definitely "plus", but I may just be weak or otherwise unworthy.

I called the route Kitchen Sink. I put up another route to the right of that called Rincon. The consensus says that it is .10c. It climbs up through the obvious hole about 20 ft. up.
