Description 

This is the bolted face to the right of Rocket In My Pocket on the North face of the Monolith. Although it's pretty short, it's sustained and balancey right up the the crux. Good body positioning and a love of crimping will get you to the business: an off-balance, mean little punch to a good edge. Have fun trying not to pump out while pulling onto the slab above.


Location 

Although it is visible from the trail, the route may not be very apparent due to the small size of the holds. The quarter inch belay bolt is helpful, as there is a sizable hole just to the right of the climb which, unless you're into broken ankles and bats, is very avoidable.


Protection 

5 Bolts
