Description 

Start below a flake in a shallow corner. Bouldery moves for the first 15 Ft (crux). Cruise up the crack and corner to a face with many horizontals leading to the shuts. This climb significantly eases up after the opening moves. Nice view at the top! A pretty light 5.11a.


Location 

Just below and downstream of the large platform used for the start of Strike a Scowl.


Protection 

Mostly smaller gear, a few hand sized pieces.

Very cool route with a bouldery crux at the bottom and fun climbing to the top. Don't get scared on the slopers.

Great climb, good gear the whole way (I took the ride off the slopers at the top on a solid bd .4 in a horizontal after getting tunnel vision and pumping out). This was the first 11 I ever led on gear and I am super glad I hopped on it!!
