This juggy climb is located ~15' right of "Hot Drama Teacher". A reachy start on small holds soon leads to increasingly larger jugs. A nice warm-up for the harder stuff.

So you guys are still bolting?

Yep, never quit. Disclaimer on this route: I wanted to call this route a 5.7 or 5.8, but I was outvoted. So, 5.9- it is.

Climbed it this weekend. Great climb for beginners. The first 10' is a 5.9, the balance is more of a 5.8.

A stick clip is nice for hanging the first draw. A lot of the more interesting moves for me on this climb went away for climbers with a bigger reach.
