This was climbed by Tony Bubb and Jenny Schillinger in March of 2004. I noted it as "5.7(?)" but did not feel that it was particularly runout by Flatirons standards. I did not give it a name as I presumed at the time that it had also been climbed before, as Dougald and company seem to have scrubbed the crag of its easier lines already. I've never really made good sense of the lines up there, as Rossiter's book even misplaces the standard South Face route on the topo.
