Description 

Thin, technical climbing that will keep you thinking. Plenty of ways to move through it, trick is finding the simplest. Save some gas and stretch for the last move.

Location 

On the face to the right around the corner from Rico Suave. Starts on or just below the five foot high ledge. Largest/most identifiable hold is the large, sloping sidepull just below the second bolt.

Protection 

4 bolts + anchors.

Man, you WV folks don't know how good you have it (or maybe you DO). This rock blew my mind. Excellent, excellent climb.
