Description 

An often overlooked classic. Climb through a somewhat powerful section past the first 2 bolts, then run it out (groundfall potential from ~30', but easy terrain) to the third through some suspect rock. From here 'til the end, this route stays on you! Use your lightning warfare tactics to stay fresh through a pumpy lieback-esque section on an awesome rail, get to an awesome undercling, and shake out for a second. Figure out some thin moves above (don't use the tree!), clip a bolt, and dash to the anchors past an amazing limestone flake. Worthy of four stars in my book--best sport route of its grade in Jackson Hole.

Location 

Next bolted route left of Crackin' the Cherry.

Protection 

7 bolts (Gooch's book has this incorrect), 2-bolt anchor with chains.
