Description 

A easily set-up and oft-done top rope. I've never seen anyone lead it, although I suspect it does get the occasional lead attempt. Reach the top by climbing Squiggles, or climbing the Uberfall Descent and heading left at the top.

Climb the crack, then work your way up the pleasant-looking but often dirty face.


Location 

At a thin crack 15 feet right of Squiggles.


Protection 

Minimal. Injury potential.

This route actually protects fairly well. The crux is protected by a very very small RP.

I've led this twice and never found worthwhile protection until the piton.
