The fun part of Wussy Boy.

Description 

Wussy Boy (pronounced with an "Arnie the bodybuilder" accent as in "u duu nut sawppert da vaar? u moost b ah Vuuussy Boy!") starts in rock very similar to that of Girly Man. Largish, slopey, blocky holds take you through the crux. If only the next section were longer. After the second bolt the limestone becomes quite featured with incuts and giant sinker jugs. Pull and stem (backstep) past the third bolt to more wild buckets as the angle eases off and a good stance is found for clipping the anchor.

Location 

This is the second route when going left to right on The Boardwalk.

Protection 

4 bolts and shared anchor with Girly Man.

We found the bottom section of this to be a bit awkward, but the top was a lot of fun and made up for it.
