Start up a slabby section, with big holds to the right which will put you precariously close to climbers on the neighboring route. Direct start recommended. Continue through big holds, working up into the corner formed by the "ear" formation. Above this, the route tilts back and the holds get really sharp. The crux is reaching for the anchors and holding on long enough to clip 'em.


First wall you encounter in the Valley, to the right of the "ear" feature


5 bolts + 2 anchor bolts. "Keychain" rap rings.
