Enjoying The Sauce at The Motherlode.
The Sauce is the little lost route on the farthest left of the Undertow wall. A couple of bolts of slightly overhanging climbing on decent and good holds dumps you at a no hands where the wall steepens. Cool, gritty, and somewhat sandy jugs lead upward, past a hidden bolt, to a good shake. A V3ish boulder problem guards the chains which may explain why this route is so neglected. A more probable explanation is the short length and sandy, gritty nature of the jugs. Many locals hate on this route but it's not that bad, particularly if the 'Lode is very crowded or you want another warmup or cool down route.
The farthest left route on the Undertow proper, 10 feet left of Leave it to Beavis.
Six bolts, bolted anchors.
