Description

This is a great route to figure out how to smear, because simply if you don't figure it out, you won't climb the route. This starts smooth and less-than-vertical. Then, it gets smoother and more vertical. By the mid to upper part, you are asking yourself, "what the heck is keeping me attached?"

A beer for anyone who flashes this route who doesn't already climb 5.11.

Location

On the left side of the smooth K face, left of the Willie's Walk, a reasonable-looking left-facing feature.

Protection

TR. Back a while back there were 3 bolts to the left in the guide, and notes indicated 2 bolts (1 quite rusted) & a #8 BD nut.
