Excellent line with a burly distinct crux.

Start out in the seam and then move right on a slab. The climbing up to the 4th bolt is probably easy 5.10.

Once you are done with this part, this leaves you under an overhanging bulge with a no-hands rest.

Then you do a 4 or 5 move sequence through a cruxy small pocket to a deep pocket. From there it is a cakewalk to the anchors.

Not a one-move-wonder, but the sequence through the crux (8 feet) is definitely the main attraction - the rest of the route is fairly easy


The trail deposits you at the crag right at a pine tree. Right of the pine tree is
(1) Princess and the Playmate (10b)
(2) an 11a that starts in a seam then goes left
(3) Slapping Leather, which starts in the same seam (but has its own bolts) and goes right


6 clips to anchors at 60 feet
