This challenging sport route is found on the slightly-overhanging west face of the Pope's Cape, a large block sitting just below the much larger and distinctively shaped Pope's Hat.

An awkward and somewhat funky thin crack/seam at the start leads to difficult moves higher on a portion of knobby rock and finishes with crux moves near the top as you deal with a bit of classic Joshua Tree thin face - luckily the friction is good.
