Description 

One of the top classic Red Wing routes, Work Ethic offers the motivated rock jock a brilliant stretch of thin, technical face climbing that is surprisingly sustained for such a short length. Even though it goes higher, the climb is effectively over at the major ledge at 25 feet. Beta is key to the thin, crimpy nature of this face and the route feels much harder until the proper sequences are sussed out. Put in the work though, this route is worth the effort!

Location 

Just to the right of the obvious crack and just left of Suicide Squeeze.
