Climb to the flake ledge. Step up and right past two bolts to a rightward rising seam. Traverse right along the seam to the third bolt. Go straight up and then trend left to the bolted anchor.


Shares the start and anchors with Afternoon Delight. The two climbs diverge off of the flake ledge, AD to the left and KF to the right.


Three bolts and maybe a couple of marginal placements...

At 11c the book is a bit generous. The difficulty is equivalent to that of Afternoon Delight. The run from the last bolt, past the crux, to the anchor is probably 30 feet.
