This route would be classic at any Wisconsin crag. Climb first 2 bolts to an OK rest, a couple crux lie back moves take you to the left and up on crimpers to a jug just below the anchors. The real tough guys clip off the ledge just above the anchors.


4 bolts, chain anchors

this looks like a direct start of yeast...

yeast starts in the crack in the center of the face(watch for bats) then dance up drips to a 12" hole with a pinch flake in it. Then thru the bowling ball pockets to micro diheadral(crux). Then 3 or 4 balancy moves to grab the mud right where the overhang ends

grade 5.10 hard

Seemed similar in difficulty to Big Man on Campus to me, FWIW.

The first 2 bolts have been hand tightened today. So, if you go up with this as a mission, bring something to tighten the bolts...

Bolts have been tightened, but still be weary in the future.
