Description 

The crux is off the ground, especially if you're short. Climb small holds to a vegitated ledge for a rest before searching for the good holds as you follow the flake to the top.
Semi-secluded route, often overlooked, but a good climb. Starts on gray rock to the ledge, then orange & black rock to the anchors.


Location 

Around the corner (to the right) from Horseshoes and Hand Grenades before the arete that is Recidivist. Back in a vegetated corner.


Protection 

7 bolts to 2 bolt anchor. Rap or lower.
