Excellent sport climb! Start just right or East of Sweet Sunday Serenade (5.9) and just left of a pillar with a bolted route on it.

Start in a short 5.7 hand crack to gain a good ledge, the business starts here. Climb thin face past 5 bolts up to a sloping bulge, clip the bolt above the lip of the bulge and make difficult and awkward moves up and past the next bolt (crux). TCUs protect the climbing above last bolt. End on a good ledge with a bolted rappel anchor. 140 feet.

Descent: Rap 60 feet into the notch and down climb class 3 to the ground or rap with two ropes.


7 bolts, 2 small TCUs.

Really a fun route as I recall. Climbed it 12 years ago but it still sticks out in my mind for the mantle moves.

You can link this pitch with Satisfaction Guaranteed (the 5.9+ crack that starts to the left of ledge at anchors) for a fun full 70 m pitch.
