Description 

At the far left edge of the Cowboy Wall and the developed routes at the Bridge Bands.

This is a 2 pitch route which can be combined for one memorable long pitch.

Pitch 1 - Begins in an alcove an follows a slab crack made up of rounded folds to a ledge. 5.8, 60 feet
Pitch 2 - Launch up and off the ledge, wrestling your way up a right slanting crack using side pulls and under clings. Pull through the roof and continue along the crack until it ends. A few more move on the headwall take you to the anchor.

TC originally did this route on gear but returned several years later to install bolts since no one really had the gumption to lead it on gear. Another fine example of a sweet limestone sport route that just happens to have a protectable fissure. People actually climb it now.
