This climb ascends a two-tiered overhang via small holds. Climb 10 feet up a ramp corner & hand traverse left on a shelf, past the 1st bolt. Gain a good ledge & the 2nd bolt. Traverse right a couple moves under an overhang to a jug & clip 3rd bolt. Powerful moves on small edges lead to bigger edges over the lip. Traverse left, past 4th bolt, to a finger lock in a horizontal seam. The second crux steps over the first roof & reaches holds above the second roof. Move back right to last bolt. Tiny edges lead over the roof up the slab to the anchor.

I bolted this route in Spring 2004. Over the years, I have worked on this route, done all the moves, but never come close to redpointing it. I belayed Colby Rickard who redpointed this powerful route on his 6th attempt (2nd try on day 3).


Start from the ground below the large ledge where "Hamster Kung Fu" starts.


6 bolts / 2 rings.
