Description

This once was one of the better 60-foot sport routes of its grade in Washington, before the pillar it ascended toppled over on April 28, 2017. It climbed an overhanging arete through a combination of left hand arete pulling and right hand edge cranking. The story behind the route's name is recounted in Jim Nelson's Selected Climbs of the Cascades, Vol. II.

Location

Was on a leaning pillar to the left of Orange Sunshine.

Protection

7 bolts.
