Description 

A great climb on great rock. The crux starts at the second bolt and the climbing slowly gets easier as one gets higher.

The third bolted climb from the left side of The Far East. Just to the right of of the shallow dihedral called The Farrier.

Protection 

Eight bolts to a two bolt anchor.

Sweet route. Thin, steep climbing with one long move leads to a little easier terrain and a rest before pulling a bulge (big grips) to easier terrain again, then one slabby move to the chains. Classic route at the Ranch!

A long move begins the crux which doesnt end until after you've clipped the 4th bolt. Beautiful rock.

The east's version of Crimp Scampi and the better of the two in my opinion.
