The first 12 feet are doable in flipflops. The rest of the route makes up for it. It follows the right arm of what is locally known as the Y.


This is left of Hollow Excuse. See the photo for Hollow Excuse.


5 black bolts, anchors over the top.

Very fun climbing up the flake with one powerful (for the 5.9 grade - almost a 10a single move). The top is pretty good too. I gave it 3 stars because of the dirtiness up high, but as that cleans up, this should become 4 stars. It's not that dirty though, just "dusty".

Watch out for poison ivy at the base of this route!
