Description 

Tricky beta right off the ground makes for an enjoyable puzzle of a route. A fun 5.9 once you've figured out the sequence.

Another super polished, bouldery start with -EASY- climbing above. It's fun regardless, and it also provides convenient access to the ledge where anchors for both "Angels and Poets" and "Matter of Honor" can be accessed so you can get ready for your headpoint of these two spicy leads by practicing on top rope :)

Location 

This is the route that people make up names for with the GIANT ARM-EATING hole at the bottom... but seriously, my wingspan is 6'8" and I cant reach the back. (Begin just left of this anomaly)

Protection 

4 Bolts, Sport Anchors

Thanks Chance. This was the first route I ever developed. John Hogge mentored me. I got no less than a dozen people on this before sinking the bolts.
