Wow!! This thing is good. Can't be the same grade as Hakuna Matata though.... Mostly straight crimping to a rest and crazy cool crux.

Most underrated route at Drive-By.

This route climbed really well and was a lot of fun...until the holds seemed to disappear. Seriously, though, there is a quick link two bolts down from the anchor and I could not figure out a sequence through there. Having done both routes to the right with relative ease this one definitely packed a punch that left me stick clipping!

The grade is sandbagged.

Seriously, what is the beta on this thing at the top? I had to bail on a quick link on the penultimate bolt because I got shutdown hard. All lichen to the left and the seam to the right had some chalk but was not good plus was several feet off the bolt line. Felt WAY harder than Hakuna, which was very straight forward.

Spoiler alert: Pretty sure the easiest Beta is right hand in the seam to the right. There is a left hand crimp near the bolt.
