Description 

This route is located between Teachers Pet (5.7) and Things I Should Have Learned in Kindergarten (5.6). It starts two feet right of Things I should Have Learned. The route works up and over a ledge and up a flake, this being the crux. Like Teachers Pet you pull onto a slab and the climbing gets easier. The route continues to the top of the cliff and there are quick clips located on a boulder at the top.


Location 

On the right side of the Things as they Are alcove located between Teachers Pet (5.7), which is the right most route, and Things I Should Have Learned in Kindergarten (5.6)


Protection 

10? draws at most to quick clips.

The purple route in the picture is Piece Of Cake. It has a common start with T.I.S.H.L.I.K. Then goes right. Considering the 5.5 crux, Idont think the top is that much easier

I updated the description to read more appropriately, because I think you are right, it is easier but not a ton easier. This is a fun easy route.

A cool 9 bolt lead, great for warming up on. This is an ideal first lead and a good introduction to the jimmy cliff style of friction climbing.
