Like its neighbor, Junior's Last Laugh, this obscure but fun route climbs through a big roof on the upper reaches of the East Face. The name comes from a comment during the FA, when a light rain turned the usually reasonable lichen into slippery, "velvety" patches that nearly caused a big fall.
This route starts off the right end of the big tree ledge at the end of the third pitches of Hidden Crack and Rip van Winkle.
Gear to 2".
