Description 

Interesting and technical face climb between The Wasp and Lilley's Delight. Start up the bolted face 20' to the right of The Wasp, following the bolt line closely as it moves gently left and up...too far to the right and you encounter easier terrain near Lilley's Delight (5.8); too far left and you find yourself on the thinner and slippery-er Master of Dafeet (5.11). Bring your partner up after you and tackle Sympathy or Prime Directive next for the best "multi-pitch" climb at the Gorge!


Location 

Approach via the Main Wall trail. Route is just above and right of the point where the trail reaches the wall.


Protection 

5 bolts, bolt anchor

Sweet balanced tip-toe moves keep you moving through thin features on decent rock quality for mission gorge.

This climb is very hight dependent.. anyone shorter than 5'5" at the least, is going to have a sketchy lead..

Did this climb yesterday, didn't see a fifth bolt like it says but the last 15 foot (possibly where another bolt is missing) is 5.7 climbing. Great climb. Nearly no feet makes it difficult but also easy to see where that one and only foot placement actually is.
