Description 

This is a fun, long pitch that looks harder than it is.

P1. 5.8+: Follow bolts straight up, then angle right on flakes to a slab with a bolt, and head up to a large ledge with chain anchors shared with Summit Fever.

You can continue up the second pitch of Summit Fever to the top of the wall.

A 70m rope is mandatory to rappel.

This can also be approached by climbing the first pitch or all the way to the top of Squat Tower and scrambling off the back.

Location 

This is the first bolt line right of Summit Fever.

Protection 

Six bolts and SR to #1 Camalot. Take a few long slings to sling flakes.
