Description 

Good climbing with some weird moves. Can be a single pitch but to reduce rope drag it is best to break into two. Protectet the traverse for your second.


Location 

Start up the obvious crack on right of McBride's Mind. Move left and rebelay. Then zig zag up the easiest line and angle left toward the Crazy Alice rap station.


Protection 

Gear and chain anchor.


History 

This route was named 'Flying Grasshopper' originally with three starts and three finishes. Together, Richard Pryor, Larin has Balls made up two of the three variations of this line.

Hard to not have rope drag, way too short for multiple pitches. Contrived, but still worth climbing. Almost peeled on the lichen covered traverse at the end, escaping a nasty long fall. Puckered a bit.
