A fairly awesome route in the middle of The Streaked Wall. Starts on some steep, knobby slab that becomes crimpy. At this point the climbing contains an emphasis on high stepping and reaching to the next decent hold that is usually no more than a long static move away. Climb higher to a typical crystal pinching ramp to a quart-filled crack. Gain a dihedral stemming problem complete with a sporty layback sequence that ends on jugs. Snag a rest and get set up for a leaping traverse to the right on crazy crimps and freaky feet. Gain another slab to the anchors. Overall the route is steep with great, powerful movement with full on feelings of exposure! Get on this one if you climb the grade and love the challenge an unusual route throws at you.
Down the slope and to the right of the black streak that holds "A Man Afraid of His Horse"
10 bolts. Some bolts at the bottom are crappy spinners. The bolts where the climber is most likely to fall are brand new and bomber.
