Chalking up after the technical crux and preparing...

Description 

Fantastic overhanging face climb up beautiful orange rock. The climbing is pump with a technical crux about 1/3 of the way up. It doesn't get much better than this. The movement and ascethitics of this climb are hard to come by. The best thing about it is that its "trad".

Location 

Located just left of the Chicken head wall and just left of Job 3:25.

Protection 

The protection is adequate but can be strenuous to place and tricky to find. If the leader misses the gear it becomes an R rated lead for sure.

What is there to say about this route other than I would put it up to any single pitch hard-moderate line in the West for it's sustained nature and utter beauty. This climb IS Arkansas climbing for me. First climb I ever did at the Throne over ten years ago, TR'd it and was pumped stupid!
