Description 

Early crux. Technical start to a roof pull, the rest of the route is probably 5.9. Long and similar quality to redtail.

Protection 

17? a lot. Trail a rope for the rap, I would say 2 70's

Bolted and FA by Mike Engle and Chris Barnes on July 25, 2015. 160', 15 bolts plus one .75 or #1 cam (optional). 10c/d: bouldery start to a tough pull through the overlap then fun cruising to the top anchors. Single 60 meter rope will get you down via Twinkie or Zinger's 1st pitch anchors. High quality rock and climbing between Twinkie and Zinger.

this is an excellent route, fun start and lots of engaging climbing after the crux. I only had a single cord, so I went to the Twinkie anchor, not hard to do.
