This is a neat route which will be especially appreciated by those looking for less intimidating routes to lead at Index. Probably a tad easier than Roger's Corner. The dihedral at the top can be stemmed or climbed as a chimney--fun either way!

I had the pleasure of climbing this not long after it was first put up. Most of the climb is pretty casual with the crux near the end. The last 20 feet is a really fun puzzle to solve. It's a good line for the climber that's new to trad climbing.
