Description 

Start climbing on cool horn and pocket-like features on the Mineral Fork Tillite. Get to the quartzite and make a cruxy move on a crumbly, yet surprisingly solid side pull to a good jug system.

Move left and utilize crimps to get to a fantastic jug. Move even farther left to reach a great two-hand jug right below an extremely steep face with a glued hold on it. Either make an extremely dynamic move (fly) or a tremendously powerful static move (fight) from this glued hold to jugs that seem forever away.

After this crux section, follow the steep jugs to chains, fighting the pump.

Do you have what it takes to be like Superman?


Location 

This route starts on the bolt line that is farthest left at the steepest part of the cave. The bolt line splits in two after the fourth bolt—the left line is Superman, and the right line is Batman (.12a).

Superman is route number 12 in the beta photo.


Protection 

12 bolts plus chains.

Superman got its name from your arms' positions during the crux move (which I, despite several attempts and lots of hanging rest, couldn't even do).
