50 feet left of DaVinci's Left Ear. Endure the oil saturated rock at the start to find an enjoyable slab rife with overzealous tick marks courtesy of the FA. But if it rains before you get there, all bets are off on your ability to onsight measly 10B.

thanks to the climbing corpse and blake, the grade has been kept humble. I stink at this angle, so it felt harder to me. but getting schooled by a guy older than dirt made me reflect.

much easier than the blank and scary-looking face you may perceive from afar. also, kipp, since when do slabs have holds all the way up (spoken by a true weak sauce top-roper)? maybe if we hadn't just been discussing "drip wire" and you hadn't been trembling i would have believed you about the grade. :-)

When this thing cleans up it will be a great addition to the gallery. Very fun moves coming around the corner.

this is a super fun route. the first couple bolts of climbing are dirty but after that the climbing gets really nice. a true onsight of this route (ie no chalk) is a bit of a heady experience but really great.

Fun route. Hope that the tick marks have been washed off for the full effect.

Full effect, no chalk, and nice route! Would def give it 4 stars if someone were to pressure wash it!!

Most surprisingly enjoyable route I've done. I say that mostly because expectations couldn't have been lower. Didn't have a guidebook, but we knew it was a 10b. Looked much harder, and really terrible from the ground. I actually brought a bail biner with me because it looked so awful. A thought-provoking route that has some enjoyable movement. Enjoy reading the route while climbing, because you won't be able to much of any from the ground.

I have walked pass this thing dozens of times and always thought, that is not my type of route. Today I decided I needed 10 points and went for the tick less onsite. It is heady for sure without the roadmap. The only thing that got me to the top without falling was that I wanted my 10 points and didn't want to have to do it again. As a novelty it is fun once, but if the whole Red was like this route, Miguels wouldn't be running out of pies on Sat night.
