Description 

Scamper up the crack start and onto the face. Swim through giant grapefruit and football sized pockets until the angle tips back a bit. Smaller jugs offer easy clipping stances and set you up for the Wild Iris-like ending up the white bulge. Very fun with different solutions for different sized climbers.


Location 

The first route you come to when the trail finally meets the wall. Just right of Daddy Fat Sacks. Begins in the wide crack

Protection 

8 bolts and chain anchors

Another fantastic Lake Point route. Couple of options at the crux for climbers of different inclinations. Potential for decent (safe) airtime on the upper headwall!
