Description 

This is a good route, though it gets lost among all the better lines at similar grades at this crag. Still a worthy route, and may well serve as a good warm-up if the other 11s are taken.

Shares the start with China White, then tricky climbing out of the cave across a tenuous traverse, then up to a big (dyno?) move near the top. Fun and challenging.


Location 

Same start as China White and One In The Pink, up to the low cave. Head hard left here, as it is the leftmost of these 3 routes.


Protection 

Bolts to a 2 bolt fixed anchor.
