This is fun but short, and, like many routes here, overrated. Start to the right of a small prow or bulge (look for the enticing finger crack running up and left between bolts 3 and 4. A bouldery start raises the biggest challenge. After the 2nd clip, it's smooth sailing.


A TR can be achieved by walking further west and gaining the top of the cliff through easier means. 4 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor. Two anchor rings (shared with "The Perfect 10").

Fun little climb. A variation using the crack a few feet to the left between bolts 2 and 3 offers a 5.8 option. A few of us rookies climbed it that way the day after Sarah Palin was tagged to be VP candidate, and temporarily named it "McCain Picks a Girl".

Hard to assign a route grade to this climb. Basically 10b (V0) up to the second bolt, then easier after. Still a fun climb.

Better than "A Perfect Ten".
