Just to the left of "bovine blowout" For those interested, first top roped by Greg Griffith in the 70's. Real name is "Tatoo" which was picked by the first person to lead (unroped solo). There was a person he didn't know witnessing the ascent with an Inca type tatoo on his arm.

3 out of 5 stars Done this one 100s of times

I learned on this route. It's definitely the route to do in KC. Take a cam/sling for the diving board if you lead it, and if you TR, take a freaking etrier or suffer the one-arm pull-up madness.

This route is harder than 10a I'd say. For me it feels like 5.11 on lead.
