A lone bolt protects the start, then easy climbing leads across a blocky ledge to the route. The crux involves a thuggish undercling combined with a high step and a big reach up and left.


This is the bolted line left of Howdy Doody Time, right of Short Dude.


10 bolts to rings.

Is this really done by reaching the jugs from the undercling or is the intermediate crimp used? I traversed left to the arete and then came back right... was probably off-route but still hard and pumpy.

Hey Geoff, I finally got back on this again, fun but burly! You go big, straight to the jugs, throwing with your left hand. Right hand in the high, huge, undercling side-pull and left foot high stepped. If you don't hit the jugs, it's possible to crimp below and bump to them. Stemming behind your back makes it a bit easier. I didn't use the stem on the FA (I was too charged up to even notice the option) and avoided it yesterday, for full value.

Do yourself a favor and tape your right hand at the base of your little finger.
Pretty fun route.
