Description

Good cranks on pockets and edges make for a fun ride. You might end up dynoing a couple moves, I found long cranks between decent pockets near the bottom with a cruxy move off a high undercling near mid height. The moves eased off even as the holds shrink on the slab near \the anchors.

Location

MMinH is just right of Blackalicious on lighter rock. Just left of Urine Luck (12a).

Protection

5 bolts to anchors.

Naming history: After eyeing this line late one evening, Aaron Huey had a friend tie off a fixed line to a tree up top. The following day, after ascending a different part of the cliff, Aaron decided to rappel down this fixed line on a grigri. As he leaned out over the edge, the end of the rope slipped through his fingers. The grigri had arrested his fall, barely, with only a few inches to spare. The rope had been tied with a REALLY long tail after the knot, and he had mistakenly tried to rappel off that tail. Aaron said he felt like that would have been the end of him had he been on his atc.
