Description 

Climb a straightforward face to a shelf with a short, cruxy, very slightly overhanging face. Continue up well-featured rock, past the scissor-jack (off of the left), and on to the anchors.

Location 

At the top of the approach trail, step up and left onto a wide shelf and walk about 25 feet. This should be the 4th set of bolts from the step-up.

Protection 

Ten hangers to a two-bolt anchor (thanks, Arlo, my memory was hazy).

10 bolts on this climb, to same rappel anchor as Monkey and Engineer. First crux is high step over bulge, with a second slightly easier crux about 20 feet from the ledge over another bulge.

Cruxes are only a few moves long, but a fun outing.
