Description 

Tricky and strenuous moves highlight this climb. Given 5.8 in the 1992 guide, this route was listed at 5.9 in a posting by Alan Watts on crag.com back in 1999. A fun, short route that I'd give at the low end of 3 stars.


Location 

On the north side of the block. It's the first route left of the NW corner


Protection 

Bolts.

starts with a low crux then fun after bolt 2. Would be great if it had 2nd or longer crux.
