Description

Easy climbing on positive jugs for 2-3 bolts, then things get really smooth. It would be very easy to go to the left on Wet My Whistle, or the one to the right (since these climbs are all very close together). Some thin slabby climbing lead to an easier low-angle section up to the 5th bolt. After that, you need to overcome a slight bulge. Some fun moves are found here. Then it's some thinner moves to the chains.

Location

This route is sandwiched tightly in between Wet My Whistle and Unknown 2 .

Protection

6 bolts to chains.
