You might want to wash and dry your hands if they are still covered in lotion at the start of this route. It starts with a height-dependent boulder problem almost right off the ground on beautiful white and orange limestone. This leads to a good rest on JUGS! Execute a not-as-hard crux, but way-more-technical-on-the-feet-and-fingers, on a prow. Hopefully for you, the top will be dry. I was a muddy mess when I finally barely clipped the chains.


This is located between Some People Poop and Shades of Gray Project.


6 bolts and chain anchors.

Found great short guy beta for the opening boulder problem: look for a left knee scum. Great climbing on great rock!
