Description 

Enjoyable slab climbing along a faint seam leads to a crux just past the last bolt, where you must trust the rubber and go for it. Most of the route is fairly mild which makes this route (and the others on this wall) good for someone getting into leading.

Location 

This is the left of two bolted routes on the right side of the crag and is located just left of Firewater (5.5) an easy slab route.

Protection 

3 bolts, chain anchors (shared with Liquid Courage, Firewater and Rotgut)

Agreed. This is a good wall for those new to the sharp end, or doing their first lead of a particular grade. Short, steep starts followed by low-angle slab. The upper crux on this one sets it apart.
