This is the furthest left route in the Skull Cave. Follows the blocky corner on the edge of the cave. Steep and sustained, it is a good warm-up for the rest of the cave. Worth doing if you're in the area, but not fantastic. The last clip is kind of hard.
Five bolts to 2 bolt anchor.

Well, you can do super-dooper Pile Driver and go Morrison Steaze and create an imaginary line that you can use foot holds below. 5.11b++.

The guidebook description of "polished and ugly, but undeniably good fun" is pretty much spot on.

Lots of edges, but a lot of fun.

Beware of permadraws on this route. I climbed the route in '09, took a fall above the 3rd bolt, and realized the dogbone on that permadraw was worn out to the point of being stretched and frayed.

Most steep 11 I have ever seen. It's what you think Rifle should be: polished, steep as hell, but still way fun.
