Left of the bolted dihedral is another line which begins near a built-up sandbox in a swampy section of the trail. A stab to a decent edge gets you started. Another edge stab to get over the roof and then it's a long, steep haul on jugs the rest of the way.

Descent: Chains
Stays Dry: Does not stay dry

Oops comment meant for the route to the left. Ignore the tag if it's still there

FA Lena Bakanova, 12a or b with a crux start. Pre-hang the third draw if you got the stick for it.

Also thanks to Marty Vogel for the help with this one

Decent line. Ultra-steep jug haul after the first couple of bolts. The kind of jugs that you can sink an entire hand into but you feel like might chunk off at any minute. Kind of like Ian's route, On Thin Ice at Portal.

Man, when did Ray turn into a rock snob? First, OTI is super solid from the ground until the roof. I know of one hold that has broken from about 12 or so ascents up it. The roof has these incut plates that feel sketch because they are not thick... but I yarded on them and couldn't get them to break. I was actually hoping that they did break to make the roof moves a bit less juggy. After the roof one ledge you have is chossy and I broke 1/2 of it off with a hammer. Something in the roof may break still, but I don't see much else going.

Ian, I'm flattered that my opinion means so much to you. An no, other *anonymous* person I gave On Thin Ice 3 stars because I felt like it was pretty cool. This line I only gave 2 stars because it wasn't as cool. By the way, nothing is stopping you guys from building your own website for your routes so that you can give them as many stars as you want. Please, feel free to unfriend me on Facebook as another route bolter has done, in protest.

oh, I didnt unfriend you on facebook because of you hatin' on my 5 star routes was your continual texting of pictures of you in pink panties that was getting me in trouble.

I really enjoyed this climb. Fun bouldering down low!

Love the deep wet sinker pocket at the end of the crux. There's a no hands rest in the middle of the crux so I'm all about the downgrade of this one if you can find it.
