Description 

This is an awesome little route that is unique for the area. Start in the same spot as Pump Up the Valuum. Climb up the short slab and traverse left across a massive flake to a bolt. Set up a belay here or clip a long runner. Climb up onto a ledge above the bolt. Step left to some big jugs. Fire straight up to the horizontal and escape right around the roof and pull into the corner. Continue up to a 2 bolt anchor.
