At the roof, the second crux.


This is a fun route and is very challenging. There are several crux areas. The first is above the first bolt on a thin slab. The second crux is at the overlap there are small finger pockets below the overlap, and you have to reach for a large jug up high. There is a good rest here before the route continues up a thin seam on a smooth slab. It is not a bad route! You can merge with Dog Day Afternoon after the anchor if you wish.


This climb is 30 feet right of Party Time and starts on a small ledge. The overlap at the third bolt is clearly visible.


8 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.
