Description 

In between Look Mom No Sweat and Look Mom No Hands is a face climb that can be done on top rope. I'm sure many have done this route on TR from the anchors at the top of the two climbs it lies between, but I've never seen it listed in a guidebook.

It's worth mentioning though, as the crux move, a single high-step with marginal holds, make the climb worth doing, especially since you already have the TR set up from the other routes.

The area where the move is can be seen in the photo as the light area midway up the route.

Location 

This route is on the left side of the south face of outward bound slab

Protection 

None. TR from three-bolt anchor with rap rings above.
