Description 

Climb a broken intermittant crack system with a lot of dicey lay backs and big moves. Once past the 5th bolt get a great rest and make easier moves up past one more bolt to the anchors. Very sequential with a surprise move before the end of the difficult climbing, makes this a difficult onsight. May be wet after rain.


Location 

Between Pimp Daddy and The Demon on lighter colored rock with white streaks,


Protection 

6 Bolts + Anchors

Technical, sequency, great moves and lie-backs, and a funky heady surprise at the end, this route seems a classic for the area!

Wonderful route. Why has it not been upgraded. I have talked with countless people and the most common remark is, "Awesome route. Hardest damn 5.11 in the state, but great!"

FA was Bryan Pletta and Lance Hadfield. It really is a great short climb!
