Description 

This route starts with hands and then moves to a nasty offwidth. The route does not compare to its neighbors but it makes for a good warm-up and pleasant practice of your offwidth skills before jumping on the SC Memorial.


Location 

This is first climbable looking route to the left of Karin's Corner.


Protection 

Cams to #3 camalot with extra in the large hands sizes.
Larger cams are optional

I remember it being fun since the OW stuff doesn't go on forever as so often the case at The Creek

If someone is in the area this anchor could be cleaned up. Probably needs one new bolt. Lots of old webbing right now.
