Description 

Great continuous jug haul with a few non-juggy holds and big reaches thrown in. Climb fast and shake out when you can! Harder than Bolting Barbie, easier than Crack Attack. Beware the sucker-chalked jug up top. Yet another Rad Wall classic!

Location 

3rd from the left on the Rad Wall.

Protection 

7 bolts to chains

FA Lance Hadfield, original grade 5.11a.

5.11a back in the day when climbers were badass sandbaggers. Nowadays, I think one could argue between 5.11d and 5.12a. I figure if I onsighted it hanging draws, it's probably not solid 12a, but it did feel rather stout for 5.11. I'd call it 5.11d/12a as per Jay Foley's guide book, but this web site won't let me be wishy washy. So I'll go with the majority of other raters on this site and call it 12a. That being said, if you're a solid 5.11 climber and have trained up some endurance, don't hesitate to get on!

Cool and a bit different from its neighbors. More variety in the holds. Some edges and smaller 2 finger pockets highlight this excellent route.

I thought this one had one of the hardest single sections out of the quadrifecta of .11d/.12a routes on this wall. Fortunately it gets easier after this.
