Description 

An underrated and overlooked sister climb to nearby Straight Shooter, with everything including tips crack, flaky face, hand jams, a roof, a mantel, and easy-off chain anchors. Easy to toprope two other climbs on this face from same anchors. My partner felt this was 10a on toprope, I felt it was solid 9 and worth 3+ stars, not the *1* listed in the B/McM book.


Location 

Flight Path Area encompasses enough ground to house 25 Starbucks if the property was on West Charleston; this particular spot is a rope length to the right of the right boundary of the Stick gully-maybe a ten minute walk from Straight Shooter.


Protection 

Standard rack w/extra small cams

What an awesome, unheralded climb. Wow! Variety and sustained difficulty, very fun. Starts out like a miniature Straight Shooter and then goes through several awesome roofs with some of the best easy face climbing I have done at Red Rock above.
