Starts on a tricky face with a surprisingly high first bolt. Be careful here as getting to the bolt is not easy; in fact getting to it and past it may be the crux. After clipping a second bolt, follow a seam up through a roof (also cruxy) then delicately climb the water-polished crack and face to the top.


See Squeezing the Lemmon 3 for this route's exact location.


2 bolts, light rack to #2 Camalot. Small gear required. A bomber yellow Master Cam/.3 Camalot protects the roof move.
