Pretty much the leftmost route at the Fish Wall (there's a short three-bolt job a little further left next to another two-bolt route that is missing its hangers) is this fun little number. It's just left of Living in a Vacuum on the same panel of rock.

Cruise chunky but decent rock through some cool holds and huecos down low to a faint arete below the right-arching crack. The fifth bolt is hidden but is just above this little arete. Bust right of the arete or take the arete straight on (more fun and not really any more difficult) to the grungy crack. Good and smooth hand jams (optional but recommended) take you up the right-arching crack to a steep move just before the anchors.

This feels pretty soft for the grade and makes for a more enjoyable warmp-up in the area than Seaweed.


It is a few feet left of Living in a Vacuum.


Seven bolts to a two-bolt anchor with chains.

This is a nice route wth good protection for the most part. Getting to the 2nd bolt looks a bit sketchy but works out ok.
