Really cool line, with fun right to left movements that are unique from the rest of the lines on the main Bib wall. This route is actually right of "A Confederacy of Dunces"

lots of really fun climbing on this. low crux to pumpy action between some big rests. 11b/c

decent climb. i felt like alot of stuff would break for the first 4 bolts but nothing major did. i recommend a TR cleaning

Sharp, but nice movements and good exposure.

very fun line, heady as it forces you to get very exposed as you climb far out left. a few good shakes along the way with positive pockets on the way up. Overall, a hair easier than Portrait of the Artist. make sure to use the cold shut on the 4th bolt when cleaning
