A mega classic for sure! As overhanging as this one is the climbing never gets as difficult as it looks. It is committing and scary on lead but it protects well and the holds are all there. Starts off climbing up easy terrain up to the roof. Plug in some cams or whatever and climb out on the diving board and go for the top. Very fun!! If you fall on the final head wall you will catch major air. - NOTE- It is hard to clean this route when the leader tops out and is best to anchor for the top and belay the second from there.


To the right of Cruise Control. This is one climb here you can't miss.


Standard rack/ Anchors on top.

bring a couple 1's and .75's and save a .75 for one of the last moves or run it out!

This protects like a sport route. Manage rope drag before pulling roof, and you will be fine. Unique and fun, but not super classic.
