Mostly laybacks on an offwidth against a less than vertical wall. Short, mediocre rock, and less than interesting climbing ranks this one fairly low compared to surrounding routes.

Climb up an offwidth (layback) between a large block and the main wall until you can stand on the block facing a fairly clean looking incipient crack. Say goodbye to the clean looking crack, turn left, and continue climbing awkward, kind of chossy, offwidth. A set of horizontal cracks under a cap-stone at the top give you an opportunity to pull a couple fun moves traversing right before toping out, possibly helping you not feel the climb was a complete waste of time.


In a blocky corner between the center tier of the wall (right of Chocolate is Better Than Sex) and the right tier (left of Almost Vertical).


A light rack, plenty of opportunities of various sizes exists.
