Climb well-featured pink and grey granite into a flared corner system at the second bolt, transition past a dark band of rock at the third bolt and finish up past nice holds on more pink/grey rock. Short but entertaining, and a good warm-up for the lower area.


Located on a small face between Three Kings on the left and Unnatural Act on the right.


4 bolts, shuts

Interesting moves. Stay to the right of bolts. The tree/bush at the anchor is kind of annoying, but you're welcome to do another 15-20 feet of less than vertical climbing up and to the right to the next anchor. Getting to the second bolt over the bulge is the crux.
