Description 

hard start(crux) with solid cam to keep you off the ground. very pumpy start all the way to the ledge 25' up. second crux is up high, a little hard to protect especially if under 6'tall. good warmup for White Fandango.


Location 

this route is 15' left of White Fandango and starts below a double crack that takes you to the ledge. from there go left up dihedral to tree anchor.


Protection 

normal rack, maybe an extra .75 and #1 camalot would be nice too.

route is listed in some books as 5.6
I'd say its harder than Pegasus

Looks like a whole bunch of rock sloughed off the beginning of the climb. Not much pro available.

I don't think its harder than Pegasus but those first few moves aren't 5.6 like the CT guidebook says. It's definitely a fun start. The top is tough to protect but its easy cruising up there
