Description 

This is the last bolted route in the cave. Probably the steepest climb of its grade on the Pass! Jug haul through overlaps, wrapping your body around various features to minimize the pump.

Protection 

5 bolts, chains at the top.

It's not often that you find such an overhanging route at this grade. This is a great, juggy route and I definitely recommend it. Great area, short approach, good climbs.
