Description 

Not the most popular route at Shagg, at first glance the route appears uninspiring yet the climbing is interesting and varied. Starts out at the base of It Ain't Pretty and immediately moves left requiring big moves on good crimps and sidepulls. An exciting sequence spits you out on a rest ledge above half-way. Finish straight up and right with a few difficult moves to gain the top.

This is the 2nd climb in from the far left. Or the 2nd route that one comes to upon entrance to Shagg.
