Description 

A blocky scramble kicks off this sustained beautiful face. A few moves of low difficulty bring you the middle of the face and a no hands rest. From here the route becomes very sustained with virtually no rests. Sequential moves lead up edges to a seam that ends in either a deadpoint or more static beta to a sloping flat 'jug'.
More very sustained crimping leads through a tricky sidepull move and the crux crimping sequence. A quality headwall finishes on flat edges and crimps and provides quite a healthy pump.
I found this route to be the best I did at the crag, even better than it's classic neighbor Mothership!

Location 

Immediately left of Mothership

Protection 

Lots of draws, this guy is tall and well bolted
