Lower 2/3 of The Barnum Route. The crux is right ...


This is a short, but powerful route whose grade is mainly derived from the opening moves. Right off the deck you're greeted with an overhanging V4 boulder problem, which leads to a full rest. Work through a second boulder problem over a buldge (easier than the first) until you reach some moderate low-angle climbing with decent holds that characterizes the remainder of the route.


To the right of Clowns Eat Kids. Some big huecos can be seen as the starting holds, which lead to a somewhat greasy diagonal rail.


6 bolts. The anchor has two fixed biners.
