Description

This route tends to stay dry in a light rain. Start on broken rock, same start as Stellar Idea, 5.11b. At the ledge, step right and climb out the overhang using a few slopping holds in a series and slap your way to a jug. Cool bouldery moves!. From here, head up and left on easier ground to reach the 4th bolt. Climb up the very thin and smooth rock to the anchors.

Location

This route is located just to the right of Stellar Idea and shares the same anchors at the top. Left side of the Head Wall.

Protection

4 bolts, drop in shuts.
