This route is actually about 50 feet past the dirt ramp.

This was really fun... I remember the first bolt being very high; even out of stick clip range. It had a really thin crux which felt really good.

i have a 16 foot stick clip and couldn't reach it with that. it is possible to scramble up a bit and have your partner hand up the clip if you really want it clipped. i thought the run outs were a bit heady. probably wouldn't have been bad if my leg would have stopped shaking! :-)

i didn't think this felt any harder than put me in the zoo. it might be even easier.

Fun slab climbing down low into easier stuff for the second half of the climb. The roof is practically bypassed on the left.

I think this is the same difficulty as Put Me In The Zoo, but higher quality: there are actually feet on the slab section of this one, and where there aren't, there are full-pad crimps that you can put your full body weight on to pull up (as opposed to sketchy nothing on the other). The high first bolt is not stick clippable, but you don't need to, there is a jug about 1 foot left and down from the bolt, with good feet.
