A nice top-rope route with tricky face moves and some hard-to-see holds where you need them. Has the same dramatic bouldery start as Thin to Win, but after that heads roughly straight up instead of veering right.


Top-rope can be set on the bolted anchor below the ledge or above the ledge (which is easier but has a lot of rope drag). The ledge is accessible by scrambling up a gully around to the left, or by climbing Thin to Win or Vegomatic.
