Description 

Climb the slab to the flake, then cork screws back to face climbing on the right. I put a PG13 rating of this b/c any fall would send you into the off-width for a very awkward landing.

Location 

The obvious curving crack seen from the parking lot

Protection 

single rack to #4 cam

On 11/22/10, the anchors were replaced on this route with ASCA 1/2x3.75 w/ rings. The established anchor was set up in such a way that it was loosening the bolts and wearing out their placements.

This is a fun route that protects well. The route offers several options for climbing styles -- stemming, face climbing, and even a lieback at the top. Best route on this wall, in my opinion.
