Description 

Begin at the right end of the wall on slabby territory with positive holds until you encounter the beautiful orange rock above. Make a couple of moves to a small letterbox slot, then crank consistent sustained moves on the gently overhanging headwall. This route is quite pumpy and might feel a letter sandbagged. It would also go on solid gear if you felt so inclined - good horizontals throughout with solid placements.

Location 

route at the top of the trail to the left of the large angling tree and chimney crack.

Protection 

6 bolts, or gear if you prefer, bolted anchor

I was super pumped at the top and almost gave up but I didn't. This climb is totally worth it. Not to mention there are some sweet climbs in the rest of the area.

Super pumpy, fun variation in style and gets more and more fun as you climb.
