This is a cool, short aid line right of When You're A Jet. It's sunny south face and short approach makes this a good practice aid climb. The first ascent party used a few tied off thin pins.
The route is obvious, and pops over a small roof at the bottom.


Right of When You're a Jet.


Small to med gear, and a few pitons as well (Long thin LA or long thin KB )

Walked to the base of this climb to check it out and was scared away by the exposed start. Do most people place small cams or pins under the roof before starting? The belayer could anchor off to the climber's right, but the fall potential if an early placement rips seems crazy.
