Description 

Climb cracklike feature past a couple bolts, then bust left along a steep flake with positive incut edges. Crank up into the steep laybacks of the dihedral. Stem with precision as laybacks vanish and edges appear, just as the angle eases. This one's not over til it's over. One last steep slab move threatens to tip you backward off yer barstool. Pour some out for the Bobcat if you want to send this one. Very good.

Location 

Left end of shaded grotto. Has a shared start with Squirrel Talk.

Protection 

Bolts to chains.
