Description

The free variation of the aid route of the same name. Interesting climbing zig-zagging back and forth across the seam past four bolts. The seam opens up in small sections to accept supplemental gear. The grade I gave the route is just my best guess, there's a tricky crux move after the second bolt but otherwise the climbing is fairly reasonable after. Expect a veneer of fine silt in sections until perhaps it cleans up with more traffic.

Location

The first route to climber's left of Knapping With the Alien. Look for two bolts punctuated by a large gap between two more bolts higher up.

Protection

Quickdraws for four bolts, stoppers, small to hand sized cams.
