Sick at 17000

A steep, juggy route on sharp quartzite that starts on the left side of the ledge that is under the Superbowl roof. This route climbs to the left of the roof itself.
The start looks intimidating because if you fell (which would be hard to do) before clipping the first bolt you might slip off the ledge.
However, the start isn't bad and the rest of the route is mostly a jug haul with good feet needed. After the last bolt the angle eases to the chains.
The trail deposits you to the left of the Superbowl roof. There is a bush to your left and a bolted route whose first bolt can be reached from the ground almost directly in front of you (that route is Hamster Forever). Go right a few feet towards the roof and Sick at 17000 is the first bolted route you encounter.
5 bolts to chains

Fun route. I felt the starting 1/4 was the harder portion of the climb. After you pull the initial small bulge it becomes easier, but the higher you go on this route the chossier the rock becomes, with quite a bit of small loose stuff. The top 1/4 is pretty much the same as Hampster Forever.
