At the last bolt. Pretty much shows the entire rou...
As the 1990 movie suggests, she’s a little dirty and rough around the edges, but she will clean up to be a keeper. Begin at the base of a small, black roof adjacent to the start of Hey Good Lookin’. Trend left towards a small, right-facing dihedral and continue up past a series of slabby ledge systems to a broad ledge below a second right-facing dihedral. Surmount the dihedral and launch into the pumpy, jug haul trending left out the roof. Above the roof, catch your breath and cut right to the new anchors.
She always uses protection and is well-protected with 13 bolts. The anchor is two cold shuts approximately 3 feet left and below the lower anchor of Hey Good Lookin’. The route has been thoroughly cleaned for loose rocks, but the belayer should be aware of the potential for additional small rockfall- and, keep an eye out for Richard Gere and his pet gerbils.

Fun route! Definitely needs to clean up a bit but should do so nicely.... Crux to me (and others today) was not the roof but an awkward sequence around the 7th or 8th bolt. HUGE jugs thru the roof section!

A really fun climb with some thought provoking, enjoyable moves. The climb definitely needs a little cleaning. Some of the holds are going to come off in the near future, including the jug just past the slabby section and the 3rd or 4th bolt. When that one comes off, that section may become the crux and it will likely be a harder climb.

Great movement, but the roof section makes me really nervous. Makes you feel like your tip toeing through a mine field. Continuous, thoughtful climbing.

A few weeks ago I pulled a hold right before the roof and just before I clipped the bolt. Ended up falling 2 bolts down onto the ledge before the roof. I climbed back up to the roof just paranoid, everything looks fractured (probably not but in the moment it sure felt like it), consider a helmet leading this one.

Good route, a little loose rock at the roof, but much better than before. Necessary holds are solid. Does anyone know why there is a small bell tied to the first bolt with a red ribbon?

This is a great route and serves as a nice warmup for some of the harder routes. I thought the other 10a to the left is not nearly as good as a warmup. This one has more continuous and juggy moves through the upper section.
With that said, I also felt like I was tiptoeing through a minefield in the roof section. There is one hold marked with an x that I started to grab but let off once I saw the x. Definitely avoid that hold - it's about to go.

This route is really fun with good movement; however, the roof section and the few moves after it are riddled with sketchy stone. Be very careful about what you are yarding on in the roof (and make sure you're belayer is being attentive in that section too for their own sake!!). It'd get 3 stars for sure if it weren't for that choss.

Not sure where all the sketchy rock is...seemed pretty solid to me, even around the roof. Maybe I was just so focused on the biz I didn't notice (or grab) the "chossy" holds.
For me, the crux is the move out left and then slightly up to make the clip above the roof. I cranked it cleanly on my onsight attempt not two weeks ago, but yesterday I took a 20+ footer after moving too far left. Spent too much time milking the "rest" under the roof move. I couldn't quite get set up to make the clip above the roof. The holds are all there, I just botched it. It was by far the longest fall I have ever taken. Came out with only a nasty rope abrasion on my lower leg.

The route seems to be cleaned up. Only noticed one loose rock in the juggy top section, but it is small and avoidable (has an X).

There's a softball-size block directly under the roof ready to blow out if pulled on hard (chalked). Keep right on crimper and work past left, good to go after, solid juggy holds through the roof 10-,
