Description [Suggest Change]
Despite the chossy ledge midway and silly name I feel this route is a classic. Above the 1/3 height ledge the rock changes to some of the most clean and textured stone I've ever seen. The position near the top is fantastic. AND the climb is nearly always dry, even in a downpour like most of the routes here.
Location [Suggest Change]
On the far right edge of the Rasputin ledge but just before the massively overhung "Bee Wall." Start in left facing corner. Climb to ledge and belay or runner prudently and keep pullin'.
Protection [Suggest Change]
16/18 (anchors) draws. Cold Shuts for anchors. If you're top roping make sure to use your own draws to save the wear on the shuts. 70 meter rope gets you down just fine.
