Start up Zig Zag until the BD #2 cam is placed, then bust right and follow the seam in the beginning of Bourbon Street. Follow the closed seam through the R-rated territory, which is the easiest part of the route, to a good placement and the beginning of the hard climbing. From here, pull some 5.11 moves that lead to a excellent finger crack.


A #2, singles up to #0.75. Small wires, Aliens to green. Bolted anchor, you can rap to the Sundeck with a 60m.

First Free Ascent-Chris Begue and John Hulett. A crazy step into a new direction for me(and others)-followed it with Doug Scott in the spring on aid and realized there were enough holds for it to go. Started working it on lead with John getting all sorts of creative pro and listening to Thriller by M. J. that someone always seemed to have blarring in the parking lot. That was to be the original F.F.A. name yet felt it would have taken away from the theme. Chuck Grossman came oh so close to freeing it yet grabbed a piece at the crux so the next day it went free.

If you don't want to lead it, it is smooth to traverse from the 2/3 point on zigzag and toprope it. It's fun, but it's pretty runout, toprope was worth it for me :)
