Description 

Not a death route but close. You can fall off and live (ask Tom) just not at the end. Good thing that the crux is near the bolt. Still hard climbing after the bolt though is very dangerous. TR after doing AP.


Location 

Left of AP Treat at a small flake the center of 3 one bolt routes.


Protection 

A small rp and a bolt

Is this the same route listed in Handren's book as Sticks and Stones? That one is similarly 5.11a X and has a similar exciting backstory (Tom Callaghan falling from the top but being kept from a ground fall by Chris Gill). The whole slab left of AP treat is very dirty. Does this start directly up from the flake at the base (see pic)?
