Description 

This line has excellent slab climbing. Start with careful smearing straight up past three bolts to small ledge. After the ledge, the moves through 4th bolt provide more handholds.


Location 

This is the first route north of Tempest Toast. There is a nice large tree at base to mark start of route - can also serve as belay anchor if needed.


Protection 

4 bolts to 2-bolt anchor.
