Description 

This is a pleasant, unprotected steep face on solid, knobby holds. It's really more of a boulder problem than a roped climb. The hard moves are in the first 15' - 20', with a good landing below.


Location 

Just around to the right from the inside corner of Diagnostics.


Protection 

none

This route is pretty fun but I dont feel that there is a 5.8 move on it. The bottom is slab but good. There used to be bolts on this route as evidenced by the remains. A well placed toprope can be used for this and Diabetics if you want.
