Not sure if this route has a name or not, but this is its temporary name. Start near the big pocket a couple feet left of "J crack." Face climb up good pockets, trending left to the arete. Climb the right side of the arete to the anchors. Shares anchors with "Round House and Running." Watch for wasp nests in the some of the deeper pockets.


Park at Founder's Park. Walk across the bridge near Vegan and head up the gravel road until a path branches off on the right. Follow the path or cut across up the hill to the base of the sandstone wall with the worn words printed on it. To find the anchors, walk to the left a little and scramble up a little gap to reach the top of the wall. The anchors are off the edge a little, so use caution when rigging the TR.


Two anchors up top with no chains. Bring long slings/cord to build a TR anchor.
