The low-angled slab climbing at the start doesn't fully prepare you for the committing fingertip mantle at mid-height, while the upper face (crux) is the real attraction, as it features long reaches between thin but positive holds on a slight bulge.

A worthwhile route if in the area that's steeper and has more features at the crux than it's neighbors to either side.


Climbs the middle of the block with Magic Mushroom to the left and Cavorting to the right.


9 bolts, chain anchors (shared with Magic Mushroom)

Sadly it appears that this climb has been greatly changed and possibly lost to major rockfall between Feb 20th and April 8th of this year (2016). One or two bolts are gone.
