A fun, steep sport route on relatively clean Hatcher granite. Sustained 5.10 climbing with generally crimpy holds and some fun very fun technical and pumpy movement. There are multiple somewhat cruxy moves, with what is probably the more definite crux at the top pulling over the transition from the steep face to a lower angled face-slab below the tundra ledge top out. There is a bit of crumbly rock on small holds and flakes to be aware of, which could make for a good whipper on the somewhat well-spaced buttonhead bolts.


Middle right of the Reed Creek Wall (to the right a ways of Pickpocket and the main Reed Creek Wall slab, but to the left of the Reed Creek Wall "bulb" feature that hosts three trad routes). Follows a white swath up a steep section.


5 bolts (old, but seemingly good and solid, buttonheads) with a 2 bolt chain anchor across a tundra ledge at the top
