Start from a boulder and tackle a mini-angling dihedral with some heel hooks. Climb up to a sit down ledge and when ready start into great overhanging climbing. It's not controversial if you start with this great warmup.

My guess is 10d/11a. Lots of loose rock at he beginning. Quite the adventure.

Great route. The beginning was a bit tricky, but that is probably because I'm fat. Awesome climbing above the ledge rest.

Here's a tip put down the fork, also very interesting first bolt or two, Felt like real rock climbing.

Mike Anderson does suck but this route is awesome!!! Reminiscent of Far from God except better rock quality. A touch shorter though....

Sh2un, you have the routes mixed up in your head. This is the LEFTmost of the three, and the hardest. The 10d/11a (Mooch) is the RIGHTMOST of the three routes on this section

The FA was by me in October, 2010. The route is called: "The Great Warmup Poaching Controversy of 2010"

I think we'll go ahead and keep the names as is since they're more fitting. Feel free to refer to them however you'd like though when talking to your pals.

" I sincerely regret my actions back in October, and if I could change the past, I would. Since I can’t do that, I am eager to try to make up for it now. Jason turned down my previous offer to atone to him, but if anyone out there feels I need to atone to them (Jason included), let me know how I can make it up to you.- Mike" I would suggest giving up FA naming rights would be appropriate.

section 2.1.003c of the douchey sport climber rulebook says a hot sloppy BJ is also required
