Description 

Sometimes excellent lines get bolted absolutely horribly, and this route (and three others at this area) were the unfortunate victims of a climber who needs to take a long hard look at his bolting education before putting up more routes. After two days of solid effort cleaning, chopping, and replacing bad bolts, this overlooked gem is now finally good to climb....

Begin on a slab and clip two bolts to gain a small break before launching off out the overhang. The crux is either a huge dyno to a good, left hand jug (or a powerful pull off a small crimp) which deposits you over the roof and yields fun 5.9 climbing to the top. This route was described by a local climber saying, "It went from horrible death climbing to an area classic". Enjoy!

Location 

On the left end of the Isle, this is the right of the two routes going out the overhang.

Protection 

7 bolts, open shut anchors.
