Description 

Boulder out the tough opening moves with a good spot or tricky gear. Once you get established at a rest the route is pretty straightforward. Plug up some good fingerlocks on an aesthetic splitter crack in beautiful, solid stone. It needs to be much longer, but alas!

Location 

From Yellow Brick road walk a few yards to the right. You can't miss this striking short route.

Protection 

Nuts and TCUs work well, with a couple smaller cams (#.75 and #1 camalot size).
Bolted anchors
