Description 

The first half is composed of relatively easy slab climbing with good holds and good rests. With the second half, the angle kicks back to near vertical with small feet and sharp crimps, but the bolts become more closely spaced. Requires lots of thought with tense balance moves through the crux. Three stars in the Richardson guidebook.

Location 

Just right of a detached block, and an obvious, cleaned stripe of wall. Just left of the obviously red section of the wall with the mini-arch features, which hosts Father's Day.

Protection 

9 bolts, chain anchors.
