After walking around the lake you'll see the eastern side of Rat Rock where this route is. A bouldery approach and short 4th class slab brings you to a little pine where you can belay. The route then works it's way up and across to the left on crusty smears and slightly loose edges. Bolts are placed well until the runout from the last to the anchors which could produce an unpleasant fall.


QDs and a fixed anchor at top are what you can expect. Maybe a full length or two to reduce rope drag.

There are four bolts on this route.
