Party on the last bit of Naked Ape's second pitch.

Description 

A nice two pitch route in the center of the west face. The last bit of the second pitch seems to be the crux, though getting started is an odd bit of climbing. Excellent City rock, good stances, enjoyable movement make this a quality line.


Location 

Scramble to a sloping ledge or terrace in the middle of the west face. The first bolt is up and left of the most comfortable part of this ledge. Move left and up into a sort of chimney to get onto the face proper and this first bolt. The route moves right and up, and the second pitch more or less straight up. Both belays have chained anchors.


Protection 

This is a well bolted sport route.
