Description

Moderate and surprisingly fun route, great for learning on, especially the first part.  

Goes up nice low angle hand and fist crack with a lot of face holds, past a bolt, a fixed pin, and a fixed nut (none of which are actually super necessary) to an anchor on a ledge.

Currently anchor has 2 decent bolts, a pin, and a bunch of webbing. There is another pitch that goes to the rim but it looks wide and not great and I doubt many will do it.

Location

Just right of Steve's Wimp-Out and left of Pistol Whipped. Starts in a right facing corner.

Protection

Doubles of .3 - 4 BD, 60m rope is perfect.
