Description 

Stick clip the first bolt, and pull a difficult boulder problem right off the ground to gain the first slab. Rock over another lip to the slab at the base of the corner. Bust some brilliant, powerful stemming past bolts and a gear placement or two to a no hands rest. Steel yourself for the final exit moves that sting you just when you think its over. Beware the flaky rock on this route - it would really clean up nicely with a little more traffic.

Location 

On the upper tier, this is the large, obvious, bolted dihedral climber's right and downhill from The Wasp and Telekinesis.

Protection 

Bolts and a handful of pieces from fingers to mid-sized cams.
