Description 

This route is considered the warm up at the Rat Cave. The crux comes at the beginning, a long lock off utilizing an undercling pinch to another pinch. The route follows a small left leaning channel to the first set of anchors (12a). Continue on and head straight up past another 2 bolts through more lock offs and pinches.


Location 

Second route on the right.


Protection 

7 bolts. Usually fixed draws on the second half.

The 12b grade reflects the difficulty to the 2nd anchor.

Finishing on Tuffnerd is a nice finish to the Warmup at about the same grade. This should be called "Warmnerd" and Tuffnerd into the Warmup "Toughen Up"?

It'd be a hard 12a to the first anchors. Consensus these days seems to be 12b to the first and harder (12c/d?) to the second.
