Description 

Enjoy initially desperate feet through the thin, crimpy, and occasionally crumbly start and head up dead vertical rock for the first thirty feet. Arrive at a narrow ledge and do your best to figure out an elegant way onto the ledge.

Above the ledge the angle eases a bit and the holds aren't quite so desperate. After the last bolt trend a bit right to the chains.

Location 

On the larger, downhill wall at The Cooler is a relatively smooth, gray section approximately in the middle of the wall. This line climbs to the right of the smooth area past a ledge about 30 feet up.

Protection 

9 bolts, hangers-and-chain anchors.
