Description 

The crux is getting past the first two bolts on very overhanging rock.

Bring gear (cams) for the upper crack and rap from the Louisville Slugger anchor.

This is a great little route with power moves at the crux.


Location 

Start 5 feet right of "Louisville Slugger" and 5 feet left of "Straight Out of Compton."


Protection 

Four quickdraws and some medium to large (blue) Camalots.

Crux can by a dyno or a static move out left with a cool pinch and heel to the right in a slot. Both seem like they will be reachy for short folks though.

This has one of the better backstep-dropknee moves in the canyon.
