Description 

I found info for this climb on one of the "other" climbing pages. The description was pretty short so I may have the wrong climb, but this pretty much seemed like it. I'll try to describe it a little better. Starts with a technical, bouldery sequence up fairly thin seems on a vertical section of the rock. After a big through with the left hand, work up a vertical seem with a few pods, but still too small and shallow for finger locks (balancy, fun crux.) It seems to be easier for shorter climbers but fun none the less. Above the second bolt the angle eases a bit and it turns into a fun slab climb, with one, thin, easier crux section.


Location 

On the right side of the crag, about 30 feet past Pee Wee's Big Adventure. The bottom (crux) of the climb is in the shade when the leaves are out. There is one more bolt line to the right of this route.


Protection 

Bolts, maybe 7, up to chains. There were quick draws hanging at the anchor when I did it but you may want to be prepared incase they're gone, it's hard to see the top from the ground.
