BETA PHOTO: The route.

Description 

Short, but an interesting little climb. This isn't a route where all the holds and moves are obvious. The climbing throughout is solid and continuous. The rock is really cool white limestone.

Location 

This route climbs up the obvious little pillar at the head of the loose gully that heads up to the base of the wall. It's to the right of Tick Tick Boom.

Protection 

4 bolts to chains.

I thought this route was going to be 5.6 when I bolted it... It turned out to be definitely harder. Do this one as a warm up when you go up to do Tick Tick Boom. Staying right at the first bolt is 5.8. Staying to the left more is 5.9.

Actually a perfect warm up for Tic Tic Boom. The exact same type of climbing; balancy, a little hard to read, but solid rock. Start to the right of bolt one and then move out to the left onto the actual face when you can. It doesn't seem to ease up at all even the very last move.

Not a bad warm-up, needs big loose stuff cleaned off at the very bottom right.
