Not really better than Mecca.

Description 



Begin up the flake (left leaning layback) to a small "roof" with good handjams and protection. Pull around bulge to easy climbing, followed by the crux pulling up a steep handcrack in a slightly right leaning shallow dihedral. Jams and face holds to a good rest at a 2-bolt anchor.

Location 

Probably the most frequently done route in the middle section of the cliffs. A gentle alcove with several decent climbs, BTM starts up the obvious flake on the right side of the alcove. See the guidebooks for easier identification

Protection 

Single rack of cams and nuts to hand sizes.
