This aptly named route climbs the left side of the Chew Tooth formation.

The route begins with a sequence of excellent, technical moves up to a strange but solid clipping stance for the second bolt (5.10-). From here, finesse through the fun, boulder problem-like crux that finishes with a tough mantle move (note: some useful holds may be obstructed by moss). Clip the third bolt and follow the easy but mossy ramp to the anchors.

The route is very fun but is quite short and the mossy topout detracts from the quality. Still, I enjoyed it, and I bet with more traffic, it would be at least as good as the the other routes on the Chew Tooth.

3 bolts to the 2-bolt anchor that all the Chew Tooth routes share

The route is very well protected, and the bolts look newish and reinforced with a bit of glue.

2/3/2017 TR -- Very fun bouldery moves up to the 2nd bolt. The 3rd bolt is around the bulge to the left on extremely mossy 5.5 slab. Bolts are all in good shape. Feb 4, 2018
