Description 

This is an excellent route that rewards those with good balance.

There is a certain series of moves that makes this route what it is. The route gets its name from a certain hold. If you go left, it's very easy.

Location 

This route is located on the slab to the right of the crack climb 'Conveniently Sexy'.

Protection 

Toprope, using the same tree anchor as neighboring 'Conveniently Sexy'.

The rock directly above the route sucks, but I recently made a 5 piece anchor with my buddy for solo TR'ing. Worked fine.

This face is about 5.10a or whatever (easier) on the left, and .11a or so (harder) on the right. Real balancey throughout.
