Similiar to other climbs at the pipeline. Pull on large to med. size cobbles on a steep wall. A longer move at the lip is the crux.
This route is listed in the new MC guide as 12c, but when we redpointed it, our consensus was 12a/11dish? It seems easier than both Chia Pet and Cresent Moon.

Climbed this on 5-28-14. at that time there was a loose golf-ball-sized cobble at the lip, when this cobble goes, it may bring a much larger (10-14 inch diameter) cobble down with it. Make sure the belayer wears a helmet and stands to climbers left... keep the rope pile to the left as well. Otherwise super fun! Really interesting crux!
