This toprope route climbs the narrowing face between Rock Candy (5.9) on the left and Double Dogleg (5.7) on the right. The climbing is decent, albeit a tad contrived near the top where it comes very close to both of the neighboring routes, with the crux a thin section about two-thirds of the way up and level with the crack section of Rock Candy. Two stars out of five.

Definitely worth a TR since you've already got it set up after rapping adjacent routes.

Crux is very short and sequential. It took me a couple tries to figure out the feet sequence, but I gave the beta to my pal who climbed it next and he flashed. Might be hard if you're shorter.
