50 feet left of Crazy Eyes.This and the next line to the right begin with some mank but are well worth jumping on for the post-mank stellar climbing. Climb to a ledge 20 feet up then continue past big moves including a jump to the tongue for the shorties. Big moves plus big holds makes for a happy climber.
Moves: Bouldery
Descent: Chains

11b??? 11c?? What??? This thing ought to settle down around 11a I would imagine.

Fun route should clean up well. Not sure how long the giant somewhat slopey hold that sticks out will last. Will be much harder if it breaks off

Fun climb, will definitely get better as it cleans up.

The first half of this thing will never be dry. Remember to say "ewwww, gross!" A lot while climbing it. The route does have a really cool name though.

My buddy smooshed no less than 5 slugs hiding out in pockets on this thing. Also, left anchor has a rusted Fixe hanger. It was ok, but 10/10 would take my warm-up elsewhere

I caught it on a dry day and was pleasantly surprised by solid rock and fun moves.

This is a nice little route that climbs a lot better than it looks.
