Start by gingerly snagging one of the most unusual and maybe tenuous jugs in BCC then moving up to a less tenuous but better-not-to-think-about-it baby pool sized flake, but all thankfully protected by three new bolts somewhat out of the flake's fall line. The rock improves but the difficulty spikes in reaching and passing the fourth bolt to a ledge and anchors. Great climbing. (According to the Ruckmans' 1998 guide, the original line moved left at the vicinity of the fourth bolt; choose your own path). Originally led with three fixed, 2 ½ inch knife blades and a few pieces of gear.


Furthest left (and lowest) route on Art Major Wall.


Draws for four bolts and two chain anchors.
