If you're a wimp like me, you'll enjoy climbing Meat Grinder and then stepping left to throw a tr on Red Zinger. A particuarly warm winter haunt.

Peace

This climb actually protects very well so it is a good red point project. It rewards good body position and foot work more than raw strength. Some people step to the right in the middle to get a rest using another flake, others consider that to be "off route". Either way, it is very fine climbing.

Unlike what the overview above says, I find it better to jam than to lieback.

"Climb past the pod by putting left hand deep in the base of the pod for a good finger lock and reaching high with the right to a jam."

This sorta crosses the line, doncha think?

the beta for this route is very good. the 11d isn't that bad, but if you mess up the squence getting in and out of the pod you will be screwed.

*What is "Route Beta"?
It's climber slang for information or tips on a route as in, "what's the beta on that route?" As a service to fellow climbers we ask SuperTopo guidebook users to post tips and updates to this website if they have relevant information to share after a climb.
