Description 

One of the first 5.12's in the country. Starting on good holds, climb the overhanging pocketed face. Rest on the slab about midway up, then pull your way up the next overhang. The pocket pulling was futuristic for its time.

The initial crux has been soloed by Adam Grosowsky, Alan Carrier, and Jim Thurmond. Also has been led by Jim Thurmond through the upper section overhang in the late 1980's

Location 

Nestled between Jill's and Poison Ivy Right, climb through the pocketed face while avoiding both crack systems.

Protection 

Traditional rack, tri-cams, nuts, alpine draws
