Description 

Climb huge jugs to a good rest just past halfway. Finish on more jugs at the chains under the roof. The easiest warmup at the cliff.


Location 

on the right side of the huge cave, just before the wall turns.


Protection 

Usually fixed draws, but about 6 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor

Not a technically hard route at all. The overhang just makes it a lot tougher. Then again, this is the cave, and if your can't do this route, you're probably just there to watch. (That coming from me whole didn't bother to attempt anything harder).

A great route for climbers like me who are at the Pipe Dream for the first time and have hopes of someday climbing those hanging routes. Except the beginning, it's pretty much a jug haul. Most holds are obvious (a lot are ticked with chalk). The best hold to clip the chains from is a sharp tooth-shaped jug above and right of the anchors. Fun newby route.
