Climb a flake/corner to a horizontal. Head left on the horizontal, then move up to reach the lower left end of a right diagonalling crack. Tricky moves up and right on this crack lead to a parallel right leaning crack. This thin hands crack is reminiscent of The Secret of Mother Butler aka Appetite for Destruction (but burlier) and is followed to the top.

It is perhaps 3 of 5 stars and easily as good as the two adjacent climbs.

Rap off the anchor above The Viper.


This fun route lies directly between The Secret of Mother Butler (aka Appetite for Destruction) and The Viper.


A nice selection of gear from small cams to 2 inches. Double up on .75, 1 and 2 Camalot sizes.
