Description 

Start by stemming in the cave until you can move on to the left wall, following an undercling flake to reach a stance. Follow the corner and arete to the top, passing 3 bolts on the face to the right of the arete. Aim for the tree above and right of the face with the bolts. This route has good protection and interesting moves.


Location 

Find the small cave in the corner to the left of Ambush and Block Party.


Protection 

3 bolts, and a standard Seneca rack. Tree with slings and rings at top.

Classic Begoon line. Great, sustained hard moves. After you pull out of the slot cave to the left it's harder if you go straight up and slightly right then if you stay more left. The big ledge is a nice rest before the bolts, but it does not let up in the bolted section.

Ends at a two-bolt anchor. Justin Day put up the line that continues up from this anchor.
