Well protected great rock with several short cruxes and good rests. Thin moves low, pumpy traverse, and a fun roof make for a varied outing. Being on the lower right end it makes for a great end of the day route before walking down, or if the weather looks threatening.


The route lies on the far right end of buttress. Down the hill a little ways from the giant chockstone of Swordfish Lipstick and Birthday Suit. It's the last section of gold rock before the cliff become broken and split by gullies. Look for a line of bolts and a small placard.


A bunch of bolts.
