15 feet left of "Thunderclinger" is this dirty and less than bomber route. Gently climb past a brief crumbly bulge (crux) to sequential pockets on good rock above. The route ends under a small roof with bolted anchors. There is a good reason why this route has no stars. Climb it at your own risk.
Moves: Bouldery or Technical
Descent: Fixe Ring Anchors

i thought this route was lots of fun, the top makes the bottom worth it

not nearly as dirty anymore, and the top half has some great moves.

Grab the right holds and it won't feel dirty. Beware the blob!

definitely dirty all over, and watch out if you're scared of spiders, but it just needs a good brushing (too bad i didn't have a brush). nonetheless, the holds are good enough that it doesn't much matter and clipping holds are solid all the way through.

Silly little route. Still a little dirty, but better than the 11 to its left...

Fun route. I didn't find the route dirty at all when I climbed it. I found myself using my 'height advantage' and my (shorter) wife had trouble with it. Good warm up.

I thought it was clean and solid, better than some which have been around a lot longer. Fun moves, good holds. Nice for the grade.

Decent little climb, climbs better than it looks for sure.

I thought it was a lot of fun. Dirty feet but the holds were clean for the most part. Loved the move at the top.

The first ledge you get on is a little sandy, other than that, this thing was worthy of 3 stars. Fun but not amazing. Had an exciting move guarding the chains!

Worth doing if you are at Coyote Cliff, fun little route with some interesting moves.

Cleaned up nicely over the years. Permanently dirty ledge but the actual climbing is clean. Interesting, thought-provoking slab moves with fun underclings and high reaches. Worth doing while you're there.
