Description 

This is the most popular 5.10 on the left side of the OK. It has some fun pocket climbing with a very steep and tricky finish. Climb up under the final headwall, which is passed on the left. A two bolt anchor with biners awaits you on the right. A few of the final pockets can be a little sharp.

Location 

One of the early trails from the main road leads to the base.

Protection 

5-6 bolts

The new guidebook calls this 11a, which I'll accept. The crux is all on jugs, but it's steep and sequencey. It's definitely more sustained than other 10+/11- routes at the corral.
Whatever the grade, this thing is awesome, and totally worth falling off of a few times if you're trying to get into 11s.
