Description 

A beautiful face climb located in the "New Gym area". Start 10 feet right of "Fat Burger" in the Thompson Guide. Crank up a short crack/corner past three bolts. Reach a nice ledge and veer right up the steep face past several bolts to a technical move at the eighth bolt. Move a little left to good holds and crank up the steep face to the anchor. Almost three stars. Great route with fantastic moves.


Protection 

12 bolts lead to a two-bolt anchor.

Can you provide more directions to us who do not own the Thompson Guide?

Difficult route to assess in terms of grade and quality. Easy chossing for the first half, up to a big ledge. Continuous semi-difficult climbing above the ledge, with really hard clipping. Kind of felt like 11c climbing and 12b clipping off weird balance and bad feet. Kind of spooky with the ledge below. Between the scrambling first half, ledge, and crux, clipping it gets a few demerits. The meat of the climbing is quite good though.
