Fun route on small crimps and finger pockets. Cruxes come after clipping the first bolt and at the fourth. Go as fast as you can, the rock is sharp.


After descending the right side of the Starting block, pass Dr. Diaper. The face to the right (east-facing) has three routes. HH is in the center.


Four bolts to chain anchors.
