Located just left of Beginner's Bitch. Look for a wide crack up on the boulder with a slabby base. The crux of the route is getting past the slab and into the crack. Reach high for a decent hold, and then smear up the slab until you can step into the wide crack. Once in the crack, the climbing is easy and straight forward with plenty of rests. Almost felt like a chimney at times. Ends at a two bolt anchor.


Standard rack.

I left some locking biners and slings on this route Saturday 6/13/15. Would love to get them back if anyone finds them. I'll even throw some cash your way!
