The bottom of this route is at least 3 stars, but the top is not as nice. Work up a few surprisingly steep & fun moves to gain the patina face. Work up through great rock (first crux) to easier ground. Continue up through lighter rock to a scoop. Work up & right out the scoop (second crux) to a ledge. Head slightly left to a bolted anchor.


Located in the middle of the Soda Fountain area, just right (up-stream) of Cherry Twist and just left (down-stream) of Soda Special. Look for a line of bolts going up a narrow, arete/face feature on great, dark patina rock.


Bolts & chains.

It's cliche, but this route has it all: techy face, some overhang, some patina, a no-hands, sit down rest a third of the way up, and an excellent slab finale at the end. This really is another absolute classic in the canyon.
