Just before the main trail reaches the cliff, you will meet up with an old logging road. Following the road to the right leads to the Nursery main wall. Following the trail up and left from the road leads to the left side of the wall where a group of routes, referred to as the Sanitarium, are located. This is the furthest left route. Start with a slabby boulder move and a little traversing to establish yourself on the route and get a no hands under a roof. Pull the surpisingly moderate horizontal roof to reach a couple more no hands rests, before taking on the aesthetic and overhung orange headwall.

This is Alex and I's route, it will have less than 14 bolts and should go at a hard 12. Will give a route description when it gets sent.

Nice looking line! For those that bolt routes in this range there are at least 2 independent lines to the left in this section of wall.

Sent today, 90 feet, 9 bolts. Hot Wet Noodles would go a long way to describe how my arms felt after getting down. Thanks Alex Mitchell for all the help cleaning this thing. I took my draws down but left a cleaning draw and a couple steel biners at the top for your convenience. Go get on it! Recommending 12b, I haven't done a lot of routes of that grade so feel free to correct it if you disagree, shorties will find some of the moves much harder (what's new?).

Hot Wet Pussy sounds like a good route name

Fun route! The bottom 40ft of this route is pretty much pulling bulges to no hand stances. It's all in the last 4-5 bolts. Fun moves on the roughest rock I've touched in Miller. Nice work Eric!
