Crux comes between 2nd and 3rd bolts. Traverse left from 3rd bolt to a brittle flake. Pass 3 more bolts and surmount a small overlap. Continue climbing (5.9/10a) clipping a few more bolts along the way.

Typical Punchbowl rock quality keeps this route from achieving a higher star rating.

Third bolt was placed on 2nd ascent by FA's to eliminate run-out.


Route begins at a large hueco to the right of a prominent water streak located near the center of Behind The Scenes Wall.


Follow meandering line of bolts to a chain anchor. No gear.
