BETA PHOTO: Rope Burn in Hell

Description 

A slabby start leads to steep, thin, balancy, tricky moves. The FA was preceded by a few rope flipping falls, which can be avoided if one performs a crucial foot switch to keep the rope from catching a leg before the harness. A relatively long and fun climb, as long as you watch your step.

Location 

The leftmost bolted route on Early Wall. The trail up to the left side of the mesa passes nearby making that the easiest approach.

Protection 

All bolts, fixed anchors at the top.

I got on this route this year for the first time since we established it ~10 years ago and found it safer, more fun, and harder than I'd remembered. It appears that it has seen very few ascents, perhaps because of the name or because of its relative isolation for the grade. Regardless, while I still feel it only deserves 2*s it is definitely worth doing. I took several falls at the crux, a 4 move bolder problem, which resulted in bruises only to my ego.
