Takes a direct line up the very center of the crag . Starts above the same Hawthorn bush as Plastic Happiness.An exposed adventure up the central section of Falcon crag. Possibly still awaiting a second ascent?

P1)Boldly climb the bulges directly above the hawthorn ,then follow the right facing groove . Climb slightly up left and back diagonally right,follow a broken seam to the foot of the obvious three step groove.Belay near its top on a small ledge .Large friend or Hex useful for belay.(4c)5.7+ 100'

P2)From the top of the ramp climb straight up the very steep wall to a niche where the difficulties ease.Follow easier rock directly to the summit with fine views..5.8 (5a) 95'
