50 feet right of Shootin' Hot Hugs is a gorgeous orange wall hosting two well sought after difficult lines. This is the line on the left. Pull a difficult crimp problem or dyno past it as the FA did to reach stellar and difficult climbing on the face above.

Great looking line. Nice work Andrew G!!! Is it possible to skip the opening "nerd gate" by coming in from the right? Is the 13c all in the first boulder problem? What does the rest of this beauty go at?

He told me 13c withOUT dyno. Dyno moves it from c->d. Sandbagger?
Anonymous said on February 25th, 2011
sounds like the dyno must be v10 if this route is graded by its hardest move.
allen said on March 2nd, 2011
probably is

Was the opening boulder problem chipped for the send????

more importantly, what the hell is a "nerd gate"?
kafish2 said on April 22nd, 2012
Of note is that there is a static way to do the bottom part. Still the toughest moves on the route, but no dyno needed for those who are not into that sort of thing. It involves some really small crimps a just right of the bolt line.

When kafish says "just right of the bolt line", he means about 10" right of the bolt line. Definitely not contrived. Around 13b after the first bolt, and some of the best climbing in the RRG. So good.

Truly spectacular climbing on sculpted features. The bottom "nerd gate" is annoying and difficult without good temps, but worth it for the sloper/pinch pulling above.

Easy to link into this route from Cats Demise if you wish to skip the intro boulder. Stickclipping the first two bolts keeps it safe, and the traverse is only 2 moves to meet up just above the first bolt. Makes it an awfully good 13b that way. Doesn't deserve its own spot in the book, but I vote we call it "Pussy on Fire".

Actually Andrew (FAist) didn't do the work , Troy Davison equipped.
