Description

This has surprisingly tricky climbing for a slightly less than vertical route. There is a crux almost right off the ground, then you get several tricky sections, including the topout.

Location

Currently this is the leftmost route at the crag...the face left of Rattus Floridus.

The anchor can be accessed from the top of the crag by hiking south and down, then contouring around a ledge system about 10' below the top. Keep contouring around until you see two bolts on the small wall to your left. You can use these to get you down to the anchor which is directly down from the bolt with a very small ledge to stand on.

Protection

8 bolts with two bolt anchor with quicklinks.
