Right of Sparkling Jackass is this excellent line which begins left of a low crack. Move up on pockets to reach an undercling crux then continue up the enjoyable pumpy face.

I would hope that this becomes a classic with some traffic. The moves and the rock are very good.

I consider this the best 5.11 on this wall. Grab some awesome side pulls. Then choose your own adventure. Maybe left....maybe right.

All three 11s in the center on the new wall are really good, but if I had to pick one, I'd say that this one is my favorite.

Definitely not a gimme. Cool holds, cool moves.

Lots of sprinting between jugs. The Crux can be broken with a far left crimp rather than using the undercling. Also features a perfect wako to crawl into and get the pump out. Overall a really fun route that is provides for a pleasant and satisfying climb.

On 7/15/17 there are yellow jackets that have nested in the ground right at the base of of this climb. They were active but not aggressive- climbed Jackass and Monkeys and they mostly left us alone.
