This is a route my dear departed friend Kirk Holladay put up way back in the first year of climbing at POB and I had not climbed it since then until this month. I forgot how good it is. Short, yes, but very high quality, steep, sustained 5.7 face climbing on interesting holds. The standard line starts left of the first bolt. If you want to toughen it up a little to maybe 8+/9- then start on the right side and climb over the thinner moves on that side of the initial bulge by a totally independent sequence. I will be adding belay chains to the anchor soon so maybe this route will start seeing the traffic it deserves, as a warmup for other Corner Wall routes or as your intro to POB. Recommended fun.
