Description 

This route follows discontinuous cracks up a nice, clean face. The gear is interesting, and one should be comfortable with placing wires of all sizes in some slightly uncanny but secure placements. The physical crux is shortly after leaving the ground, but the psychological crux is somewhere up there. Start in a small, right-leaning dihedral that has a 2'x 2' tiny roof a few feet up. Follow the logical line of cracks up.

Location 

This is the clean face to the left of the Trouble Every Day dihedral, and about 25' to the right of the Titties and Beer dihedral. There is a patch of "clean" orange rock just to the left of the line. See the photo.

Protection 

Standard rack, make sure you have a good selection of wires, including brass.
