Right in the midst of the bouldery section.

Description 

THIS ROUTE IS THE SHIT!!!, and it's a bummer it doesn't get much traffic as it is the very last route on the far end of French Cattle Ranch. The business is right off the ground with a stout bouldery start that lasts for about 4 bolts. Unlike the neighboring route, Team Whiny Baby, the difficulty lies in powerful long moves between decent holds. Once you're through the lower crux there is a cruiser section with even longer moves between giant pods. You will wish this could go one forever. One final crux guards the anchors and this can be a heartbreaker as the holds drastically shrink in size. DO THIS ROUTE!!

Location 

Easy to find. Keep walking to the far end of FCR, down a small hill just beyond the Back 40 wall. It's currently the last route on the wall.

Protection 

Bolts and chains w/ lowering biners.

This was the best route I climbed in my two weeks at ten sleep. Hard bouldery start leads to quality FUN climbing. Redpoint crux up high. A little loose rock from lack of traffic. Space between 4th and 5th bolt could lead to some airtime, dont blow it! DO THIS ROUTE!
