This route goes up the smooth face just left of the big overhanging block. It was originally an aid climb (so it's very well protected) then someone glued rocks onto it. Recently Louie went in and knocked off the glued-on rocks and climbed it with natural holds.

In all honesty, the description makes it sound like after I knocked off the glued holds that I climbed a very blank face. This route always consisted of a mix of glued-on rocks and chipped holds. Over the years some of the glued-on rocks fell off. All I did was remove the rest of the rocks and climb the route using a mix of natural and a fair amount of chipped holds.

It's another 13a option for folks, but heavily manufactured. Nothing to write home about.
