Description 

Even though it's been upgraded, the bouldery start of this immaculate gem still seems hard.
Works up a north facing panel of perfect rock on small edges next to an arete. If only it were longer.


Location 

A little bit uphill from the base of From Chocolate ..., just about where the trail deteriorates.


Protection 

5 bolts

Get ready to crimp! Great thin face moves, but short lived...

Awesome rock, great moves. A sweet little mini-route. Easy for 11a. Wasn't it originally rated as 10d?

Pretty fun thin face moves. The challenges end quickly however. Would be a really good first 5.11 for the technically oriented climber.

One of the best routes in the Gorge, a ladder of perfect edges. I can see that a gym-rat might think this is .11a. (no offense to gym-rats)

Wish things were longer? Once you hit the anchors of Crash Landing, clip in a looong sling, traverse about fifteen feet right, join Perched (5.10d) at the roof, and finish at the chains of Perched. A big pitch, to be sure. It's likely a 60m would work, but we used a 70. Better safe than sorry.

Probably a little soft for 11a, but either way a fun little route.
