Fun, overlooked gem of a route. Starts just to the right of Geekin' Hard. Starts off with a tough little 11a boulder problem and then moves into a sustained 10a hand crack. "10a+" I'd say. The next 2 pitches we linked to the top without much problem, but they involve a couple balancey traverses and one big mantle to an easyish finger crack to the top.
Around the corner from cottage cheese. See picture.
Standard rack to 2.5" some bolts.
