Description 

The only reason I ever climbed this route was because after finishing "Rat Ledge" I wanted to reach the top of the upper tier of Rat Rock to set a top rope on "Winning Time". The route is short but fun along a funky quartz dike angling up and right with one bolt in the middle. I don't recall the quality of the bolt being all that good but there is little reason to need.


Protection 

There really isn't much to this route other than the bolt placed right in the middle of the dike. I wouldn't recommend top roping this route because of the angling of it but it certainly could be done. There is no fixed anchor but I recall there being a crack between this route and "Winning Time" to the right which can support a top belay.
