I thought I knew what good pockets were, but then I climbed this route, and now I think all of those other great "pocket" routes may have just been a lie.

Funky start on some marginal rock (stick clip recommended) take you to the crux at the fixed wire draw (as of Nov. 2017). The crux involves some undercling, layback type stuff moving left. From here, jug bash your way up the rest of the route on hand eating pockets in beautiful, bone-white rock. There might have been another mini-crux somewhere around 3/4 of the way up, but who cares? POCKETS!!

Looks like an extension goes up and right from the chains on a hanging, rounded arete.
