A notch up in difficulty from its neighbor, this is East Vail's 2nd easiest drytool sport route. Follow the slab past 3 bolts and onto the upper face that appears overhanging (due to the void). Work the features in corners, seams, and pockets to a blunt arete. Turn the arete to the left on a sloping ledge, and finish up on the crack in the left-facing corner to the anchor. Super fun! When snow covers part of the slab, the grade increases considerably.


5 bolts to a shared 2-bolt anchor.
