Description

Follow the upward left diagonal ramp, then climb up a short headwall and over a lip to a prominent plate/chickenhead.  Continue up the slab past a thin horizontal crack (pin) to the anchor.
The overall climbing is relatively easy, but pro is generally sparse and thin.  A decent climb if you want to get in a bit more mileage for the grade, otherwise a little on the chossy side.

Location

Between 'Rock Around The Clock' and 'Here's To The Good Stuff.'  

Protection

Small rack of mostly thin gear, one pin, bolted anchor (shared with 'Here's To The Good Stuff')
