Description 

This is a nice moderate that protects and climbs well. Climb the hand and finger crack past a tree, then finish up with steep, juggy, and fun moves to a bolted anchor.

Location 

Start 10 feet left of Yosemite Crack at some large boulders.

Protection 

Standard East A rack - #3 Camalot.

Per Ben Kiessel there is now a 2 bolt anchor.

I really was surprised with how fun this route was. I was a little wary of the upper section since the guidebook said there was some loose rock, but I found it to be pretty solid. Maybe I got lucky or it has cleaned up some over the years.

Climbed this the other day, and it seems like the rap rings are pretty wimpy in my opinion. Perhaps some permanent draws might be in order? Does any one object to this idea?
