The first 20' ascend the steepest terrain on the route, with a mix of discontinuous crack and face features and plenty of stemming. The gear through this section is a little fiddly, but certainly adequate if you take the time. A shelf marks the rollover onto slabbier terrain with left-leaning twin cracks leading to a stance. Above the stance, work up a wide stembox, using the dual thin cracks on either side for progress and protection; there are some interesting maneuvers throughout the box, which will be harder for shorter folks. At the end of the stembox, enter a short flare and pull over a slight bulge using some pockets and a good sloping rail. Finish up a handcrack with jugs.
The name is a reference to a Gregory Alan Isakov song, not the band by the same name.
The lower belay is on a small block shelf that has been excavated out of the blocky choss with a 2 bolt belay.
