This route is located to the right of the large, left-facing dihedral on the upper wall (Hot Wee Wee, 5.9) and below Y-Crack on the lower face. It is a moderate way to get to the Tennis Shoe Traverse ledge system.

Follow an often wet rounded arete up and right past ~4 bolts. A light SR rack will take you to a bolt anchor after about 100 feet.

Either rap or work out another pitch to the ledge system above. This is an okay introduction to the slick rock on the main Ophir Wall.


Light SR....

If you head upward to the Tennis Shoe Traverse after this route, beware of loose rock. Definitely rocks along the way up that appear deceptively solid.
