The name says it all. It will feel sandbagged to the grade. The first two bolts are the business end of the climb. Just to the right of "Three Step" is a short, steep wall capped by a slab. Start on thin holds right off the ground. Make awkward, strenuous moves off the deck and don't blow the second clip. Move up past the crux onto the slab (climbing remains interesting) aiming for a chimney above. head to the top of the short chimney and find the bolts (shared with "Three Step").


Far right end of the south wall (furthest from the parking turnout).


6 bolts + anchor
