An excellent varied climb. A small roof from the belay leads to easy slabs, then the real business starts. Climb a corner behind a small pillar, clip a piton and pull up on top for a brief rest before the crux, a short overhanging hand crack.

A little steeper and harder than it's neighbor Exotic Dancer.


Far right and uphill from Pumpline and the other Careno Routes.


Standard rack. One rope is enough to rap down.

Classic! Did this again yesterday and forgot how hard and overhanging it is. I taped up remembering how sharp and burly the hand jam is. Also it goes from #1 camalot to #2 which I can't fit my hands in, then a #3 thank god jam.
I replaced the webbing with chains and cleaned some dirt and loose rocks out.4/6/14.
