This is pretty fun although short; good if Happy Hour is a zoo. This route is found below the Grins area on the right side of the crag on a short separate buttress. It's the only crack. Sneak up to the hand crack, and then pull jugs through a fun roof to a ledge. Now balance up with no pro to the top. A fall from the top could be bad.


Not much needed, but the bottom protects well with a #3, ~0.75 Camalot and a sling around a horn. Pro is imaginary above the midpoint.

Cool little route, instead of going straight to the top with no pro we hung a right on the ledge, through a bush and then up a crack with some cool moves.

This feels a little harder than 5.7, and there really is no pro on the upper section.
