The route begins and ends on some crystals. About 15' up a short overhung lieback is encountered followed by some tricky route finding up the wavy face above. Eventually a horizontal slash cuts across the face. Above the slash one will encounter "The Love Button" which is part of the crux. Resist the temptation to fondle the orb of pleasure too long or you'll get bucked off.


This is the fifth route you will encounter on the right side of the Gash.
