Description

This route is located between Gods & Monsters and Mr. Bad Luck.  I climbed up this route after rapping firefly to retrieve some dropped gear.  It had a ancient military ring piton in it which easily came out.  The routes difficulty is hard to gauge but it's dirty, loose, and chossy.  Yum.

It consists of double cracks and the cracks are actually in good shape and yield good fingers and hand jams interspersed with face climbing on creaking lose blocks.  It's likely when this was done it was cleaned and the rock has loosened up over the years.  It's also sprouted some lovely bushes and trees that add to the experience.  

You'll finish in the crack in the corner leading to the Firefly rappel.  An enterprising individual could clean this up.. maybe
