Easy moves at the bottom and very top, but the route earns its name on stemming moves up a dihedral requiring careful balance.


On the Main Wall near the entrance, between Arocknophobia and Jingle Bells.


3 bolts.

Worthwhile route, hard for me. A bit runout between the 2nd and 3rd bolts, I had to focus on the move and push myself through the crux. Felt good getting the onsight.
