Funky movement and cool features on this one, definitely recommended.

I think the bolt above the hueco rest needs to be put a little higher--people who are 6' 4" can still hang the draw from a good stance... :p Fun route though

Cool route, fun boulder problems. Pretty stout for 11a though. Especially if "So What?" is 11b and is easier than this route.

I agree with Spikeddem. being under 6' gave hanging the draw an extra 'pucker' factor. a couple holds broke on me and it still needs a little more traffic to clean it up. overall I thought it was really fun. felt pretty hard for 11a for me.

Super enjoyable. Just the right amount of spice. Highly recommended.

Can't believe this gets only 3 stars, the pucker factor should be at least +1. One less foot near the anchors now

This is a very good route. It requires some creativity. There is more than one crux which will have you thinking that there are no holds. I attempted and retreated back to a stance 4 or 5 times before committing. Good stuff!

Nice job on this one Boyz! <3 Climb this route! The big hug leaks water pretty liberally. A frog leaped out of it and sailed with appendages spread out. We were able to avoid the super wet parts though.

There has to be a continuous gunky canal from the jug to a puddle at the top of the cliff for the frog to jump out of the jug. :-)
