Description 

The route looks like it is never done because of all the lichen and lack of chalk, but it is a very good line. Tricky climbing takes you past the first couple of bolts. The rest of the route consists of interesting movement between good stances.


Location 

The first route to the right of Montezuma's revenge (the big detached flake). Around the corner is Orange Crush and the edge of the property.


Protection 

Nine bolts and a two bolt anchor.

A reachy start leads to the best movement at the ranch.
