Description 

Follow directions for "Philadelphia Flyer". Start about 30 to 40 feet downhill from PF. Climb up a thin crack to reach double cracks/seams. Cool stemming and good gear will get you to the anchors. Great route!

Rack up to a red Camalot.

A short but excellent route. Sustained, fun moves from the ground to the top of the inset corners. I found hybrid Aliens very useful for the flared cracks.

10a if climbed up from straight below at the start. If coming in from the left, easier- perhaps 5.9. This is a good climb with good rock and good moves, teh best at this small cliff, but it is pretty hard to call a 50-foot line a 'classic' when climbs like Country Club Crack and Athlete's Feet are within view from the anchors.
