Noelle Ladd working the crux.

Description 

This is the middle of three bolted routes on the east side and climbs a narrow face between two crack systems.

The crux comes early on as you pass the first bolt via a somewhat awkward mantel (easier slightly right), after which it's fun climbing up plates and edges to the anchors. Given 5.10b in the guidebook for the area, but it seems a bit easier.

So named by the first ascent party in response to the sport bolting of the nearby Hungover Wall, this was one of several early routes done that explored the possibilities of the Children's Forest area.

Protection 

3 bolts, chain anchors
