This is the westmost line on the cliff. It almost deserves 4 stars, and I might change my mind yet. It is a very good route. It start with an easy first bolt (probably the easiest 1st bolt on the wall). Then it gets hard, forcing you to smear and edge very tenuous holds. Hands aren't much help but they are key. Maybe that didn't make sense. A key hand-hold is there to move through the crux; however, the hands don't mark your success through most of this lower section, but good footwork does. After the 3rd bolt, the climbing eases up and hands are good again. The Ruckman's book shows a 5.10a mini-crux at the last bolt, but I never even noticed it. In fact, my belayer mentioned that it seemed like I was on a 5.8 by my speed on the upper section.


7 draws for the climb and 2 more for the anchors. It shares anchors with Out of Touch if you want to top-rope.
