Description 

Up the slab section of rock just left of the dihedral. Shares anchors with Fist. Great for hot days since it stays in the shade most of the day!

Location 

Right most of the routes on the Iron Curtain.

Definitely harder than Fist Full of Rubles. Three of us thought it was solid 5.9 at the crux about halfway up. Maybe a hold or two broke?

Funny I'd say between the two 5.8's here this was the easier but this 'rock' is definitely 'evolving' as it gets climbed. Still pretty chill and fun.
