Description

This shy route flirts with the difficulties of the steep dark streak left of "Nguvu" but avoids them with a short traverse.

Head up three bolts shared with "Nguvu" on occasionally flakey rock (10a?, easier if you know where to grab). Cut left with an easy traverse to a no-hands stance below the fourth bolt. Clip the fourth bolt and climb steep but juggy terrain below a small roof. Pull the roof (crux) with the help of some killer hidden pockets. Clip one more bolt if you like and make a couple easy moves to the anchors.

Originally rated 5.10b, the consensus seems to be that it's a notch harder. A fun route, whatever the rating, and it makes for a good warmup for the harder stuff in the Amphitheater.
