Description

This a great route with a powerful overhanging start that leads to a cool slab finish. Getting past the second bolt is the crux...watch clipping it. Blow the clip and you could land on your belayer's head.

Location

Start ten feet left of "Straight out of Compton" and five feet left of "Golden Child" on the left side of the cliff.

Protection

Five clips will get you to a two bolt anchor. A red Alien can be placed before the anchor.

I tore off a chunk of rock just above and left of the second bolt while climbing today. I was just happy it did not hit my belayer. This was from a stance just after the 2nd clip (which would be from the incut below). The remaining rock nearby is solid. Fun enough- but the upper slab still needs some cleaning. Jun 5, 2006
