Delicate slab climbing on excellent rock. This route is less sustained than Cornflakes but requires 20 feet of challenging climbing on very smooth rock. Breath-taking.
Climb past the first 3 tightly-spaced bolts of Captain Crunch. At the third bolt, traverse left for 6 feet and then head nearly straight up past several bolts. There is a clear crux encounter around the fifth bolt, as the route moves through an obvious, polished area of rock.
The route starts about 30 feet left of a large pine tree which leans against the wall that is left of Chouinard Special and Lieback.
Contributors Note: I have not led this route.
The route's only protection comes in the form of bolts. There is a bolted belay at the top of the route.
It is possible to top-rope this route using two ropes by first leading both pitches of Lieback and then rappelling down and left to the top of Cornflakes/Just for Kicks.
