Description 

This route ascends a face, to a short veritcal crack and then a low angle flake to a ledge.

The name is apt. Many people have reported seeing the namesake of this route on the belay ledge. If you climb in warmer months be wary.

Location 

The route begins on the NE corner of Jewel Pinnacle and follows the crack. This can be top roped by scrambling up to the ledge to the left or on the descent from Diamond in the Crack.

Protection 

Mostly medium sized cams. But take a few other pieces as well. There is a tree on the ledge. You can rappel from the tree or walk off left.

Cool and varied route! Definitely worth running up if you made the trek here. After the vertical cracks to start, follow the ramp/crack out left. Once I gained the ledge I traversed back right to the webbing anchor that it shares with Kool Aid (this is directly over the start). The webbing was solid, but I would recommend bringing your own to supplement (~120cm).
