An obscure classic left of Extra Crimpy Chicken.
Climb easy terrain to a bolt and then get charged up for action. Pass a small right facing corner (rps for pro) to weird rock at a stance. Pop in a #3 Camalot and embark on small edges up a bolted face to a unique move at the 4th bolt. Climb small dihedrals to a two bolt anchor.


40 feet right of the Glass Menagerie next to Extra Crimpy Chicken.


bolts and gear to #3 camalot. RP's for the start.

This is one badass, high quality pitch. Be prepared for intense variety. No brass necessary. Single run of cams tiny C3 to #2 C4 plus a small stopper after the first bolt.
