DescriptionFun short route, it starts on the far right side of the Upper Y Traverse. Begin with the good right facing finger flake, go left to a slopey hold/pinch up and left. There is a couple decent slopey holds up and right, and a right facing sidepull jug for the finish.
The handholds are fairly positive and don't shred you finger tips too badly; the feet are small for an overhanging problem.
LocationRoute starts at the crux of the Upper Y-Traverse on the far right side. There are three small right facing sidepull flakes. Begin on the far left flake (by far the best of the three) it is just under the higher (right) of the two "step features". This flake is probably 6.5' feet off the ground.
See problem "Pinch Bulge Sit Down" for variations and comments.
