This route climbs a crack past the right end of a small roof, then meanders a bit as it goes on to the top. It is a very nice mixed face and crack climb.


A short distance to the right of Poodles Are People Too.

Nice climb if you're waiting for some of the more popular routes in this area. Liked this more than White Lightening actually.

BETA... Make sure to traverse right under the little lip that's below the big roof up top; I went too high and crossed under the big roof and the pro before the traverse up there is in a crumbly flake.

Recently did this route and I see that I made the mistake that TJ warned about with regard to going high and relying on a loose flake for protection. I suspect that way is quite intuitive so just realize that doing the traverse and roof may have to be done with essentially no pro. The climbing is fairly mellow up there, but use a light technique so as not to pull any loose stuff off of which there seems to be an abundance. Too bad cause it's quite fun climbing.
