Description 

Another great route. A perfect big brother to Tangled Up in Blue. The first four bolts are powerful, slippery and engaging. From here, the rock changes dramatically and the climbing eases off a little. Share the large hole rest with Tangled, and then carry on into hardening terrain. A thin crux is just a few bolts below the chains.


Location 

To the right of Brown Sugar, to the left of Tangled up in Blue.

There is a variation that takes a 2 bolt diagonaling left escape (at about bolt 6) to the Brown Sugar anchors. That goes at 12A/B. Maybe..."Shelter from the Sugar"...who knows.
