Description

A short, glowing, orange panel of perfect rock with some fun moves and a memorable crux past the second bolt.

Start down and left of the first bolt on some decent jugs. Move up and right across a rail to a cluster of big pockets and huecos below the crux. A straight-forward sequence of scoops, and edges culminates in a dynamic lunge for a big ledge. Grab a quick shake at a horizontal break, then do a few fingery moves and keep following increasingly better holds to the anchors. Watch out for the large hollow flake just right of the anchors.

If this thing were a little longer it would definitely get 4 stars.

Location

!00 feet right of Purple People Eater
