In a way I like this better than Manic Impression. A little height dependant.

Fun, thoughtful route. Don't fall before you clip the 3rd bolt.

if you have the skills to get past the second bolt clean you will be comfortable with the runout between 5 and 6.... but you might want to dip back into those skills for the finish. also, there are a bunch of wasps camping out in the dome at the top of this thing... don't stick your hand in their hizzle fo rizzle.

I agree with Rollo, getting to the 3rd bolt is the hard part, and there are wasps just above the achors to the left. I used a #1 friend between the 5th and 6th bolts.

Rebolted with glue ins and now has chain anchors. If you ever feel the need to bail on this route (or any other with glue ins), please respect the work effort and use a bail biner!

Pretty run out, but where it is, the holds aren't bad. Not to bad of a route.

If you came out to the crag to get this and Manic Impression, warmup on Funkadelic first. Although it's a letter grade higher, I found it less heady than Manic. Both are badass, four star routes, no doubt!
