Interestingly enough, it smelled like something died near this route when we were climbing it but we never found the source of the smell. Start out by climbing up to a small overhang to reach the hand crack. Pull the small overhang using great jams to gain a stance (crux). From here, follow the crack to the top on easier terrain. There's great jugs and great stopper placements to the end.


As you approach the Sunkist wall, continue past the trail on the right that leads to the majority of the climbs. This is the obvious crack line that starts on the side of the road, just to the right of a sport route(sport route not listed in Cater Guide, 3rd edition).


Standard rack. Gear and stoppers to 2". Shuts.
