Description

A left facing corner located between Big Guy and Wavy Gravy.
Climb a left facing crack that starts with mainly hands that goes to fingers with feet onto a small Ledge/stance. Then you will get into the shallow squeeze chimney and then pull the small roof; after the roof the crack gradually gets bigger and then pull onto the big ledge.

Location

The route is located approximately 100 feet to the left of Wavy Gravy area in a left facing corner. There is a tree about 20-30 feet to the left of the route.
There is also a plaque at the bottom of the corner.

Protection

Double set of cams from 0.2 Camelot to 2; plus a medium size nut (yellow offset dmm nut works great). You could also place an optional #4 or #3 in the first third of the climb; but not necessary.
