Easy climbing on chossy holds for the first 3 bolts leads to a crux traverse, roof pull, and powerful moves on bullet limestone. The movement on this line is fantastic and is, in my opinion, better than Deflower Power.

Since the nearby beehive has been abandoned, and the start area and lowering areas have been cleared this route deserves to see a lot more traffic. Get on it!


Scramble up a boulder near the old tree where the trail steps down and the Block Party roof looms ahead onto the left side of the Block Party Ledge.


5 bolts, two anchors with quick links.
