Writing in chalk MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Be it for beginning leaders, or an easy warm-up for the more experienced, this is a neat little route. Follow generous holds and the beautiful right-facing flake to the top.

Location 

The right-most route of Tattoo Wall proper. Just LEFT of the ramping route, Plumber's Crack (5.6). Look for the obvious flake midway up.

Protection 

3 Bolts.
Anchors.

Fun short route with a fun pull after the third clip, keep your feet to the right and let your hands wander the edge of the flake. it goes!

Looks more run out than it is. Fun and easy climb!

Super fun route, climbed as my third lead. Reaching the first bolt can be a bit intimidating to new leaders - requires extra long stick clip, or solid bouldering skills, once on it climbing is smooth. Glad I took the time to climb it.

"Solid bouldering skills" is a bit of a stretch. It's barely 5th class to the first bolt.
