Description 

Start this fun juggy route by climbing up a slabby corner below the overhanging wall above. Easy climbing over a small overlap deposits one at a rest below the crux overhang which is climbed on positive edges, horns, pockets and flakes. After pulling through this, easier, but thought provoking, slabby climbing leads to the anchors.


Location 

This is the second route from the left end of the under-appreciated Overhung Wall.


Protection 

5 or 6 bolts to chains.

Pretty fun climbing, despite the very, very, obvious, two finger drilled pocket at the beginning of the crux. What can you say though, it's the sport Park. Worth doing.

This pocket seems to be "natural". Not the usual slick texture that a manufactured hold inhererits. If Jessie is out there listening, is it a drilled pocket? The move can be done without it.
