Description

High-quality, excellent rock, difficult, and long...the complete package; a rare and special route. There are two long sections of really hard crimping.

Stick clip. Lean across from the large boulder. Once on the face, traverse left (no feet) to some good holds. Go straight up the face to a fixed anchor at the top.

There are a two "rests", if you can call them that.

Location

On the large boulder left of Father Knows Best. The purists start down in the hole behind the boulder.

Protection

The route is mostly sport, but with really long spans between bolts. On one bolt (I think the 4th), you can use a really long draw so that you can clip from the good horizontal (or use a cam). Higher there is a good rest hold on the right (on the side of Father Knows Best), and you can get a good nut or cam here.

There's a video of the 2nd ascent (or, the first non-Fred ascent, as I think Fred has led this several times) here:
