Description 

This is one of those routes that climbs a bit harder than it looks, and it is a tad reachy, too. This too is still shedding.

Take your time to get in balance on the start as the holds seem to angle a bit less usefully. There is a reach that will be a stretch for the vertically-challenged, but be patient and you'll get a great edge just a bit higher. Near the top, you'll encounter a broken off flake that seemed a bit fragile, too.

A taller climber may find this easier than 5.9+.

Location 

This is the 3rd bolted route from the left end of the west face of the Middle Crag, aka Slam Dance Buttress.

Protection 

4 bolts, 2 bolt anchor.
