This enjoyable route essentially follows the left arete of the pillar underneath the main wall with some face moves in between the lower and upper arete that provides moments of focus along thin crimps and high steps.


This route is down and to the right of the main face, only route left of the first pitch of Finger Lickin' Good.

Fun route with a cool variety of rock features. Well worth doing if you are in the area. The knobs up high are pretty sweet.
