Description 

A somewhat overlooked route with the super popular Misty just to the right, Super Grover is one of my favorite lines at Sand Rock. Climb moderate moves up and right along a pebbly crack for the first few bolts and then set up for the crux move off an awkward left hold, reaching for a "bread loaf" hold high up. After a cool cross-through move, fight the pump up the steep wall to the chains.

The crux on this route is probably harder than the DCA's 11b/c rating would lead you to believe, especially if you're on the wee side. I do it statically, but I've heard others throw to the loaf.

Location 

First bolted route to the left of Misty. This route gets toasty warm as the sun hits it early.

Protection 

5 bolts, chain anchors.

It speaks to this route's difficulty that there is virtually always a bail beaner right below the crux. 11d indeed.
