Description 

Another good 5.10 in the lower gorge...
This one has nice variety and pleasant moves.

Start by clipping a bolt and making a tricky move to get situated in the stem box. Work up through more moderate climbing to a stemming crux at the top.

Location 

1st route left of Pure Palm

Protection 

Nuts and cams to 1.5".

Cranking move past the bolt.... but a small alien goes in right when you need it. Expect a sting-in-the-tail reaching the anchors! Although it is mostly small pro, there is a nice place for a #2 Camalot.

Seems to have 2 distinct cruxes as mentioned - getting past the bolt at the bottom & getting the anchors (2 moves at top). The bird shit has been cleaning up nicely over the past year.

Great climb. Fell at the top just below the anchors, it gets kind of weird up there.

Update as of Oct, 2014:

No birdshit on this climb at all.

Watch the flexing flake at about 20' off the deck. If you put a nut behind it while hanging on it the nut will get extremely wedged and might require a hammer to get out since your weight will be flexing the flake when you place. Probably better to put a piece slightly lower.

Three BD .5 sized pieces are nice.

You can easily reach the chains on The Caning (12b) to the left of Cornercopia from the anchor. You can also sneak over right to setup a TR on top of Pure Palm, although that is a harder traverse.

I always find the traverse at the start freaky; doable, but heart in mouth. And yes, a blue alien just when you need it. Fun warm up route. The fall at the top is clean, i don't worry too much about fiddling with gear where it gets really thin. A WC zero yellow works high, if you want it. Fun line.
