Description 

This route features great movement between good pockets. The moves can be reachy at times but the crux at 2/3 height provides a few options of pockets to choose from. Following the crux a 20' runout (5.8) leads to the anchors.

Location 

This route starts in the center of the wall just left of the giant unmistakable overlapping roofs of Cowboy King and American Beauty. Currently (2016) the center of the three routes on this wall.

Protection 

Bolts. Anchor.

The danger from the last bolt run out is negligible. If route is PG13, than so is Elmo's Fish in Sinks.

I agree w/ BFab. If you can make the cruxy last moves (which are comfortably protected) then the top out will never be an issue. Even if you did some how slip, you'd be safe with a good belay.

The runout is how they were done then when on easy ground. BTW< this was the first route established at the Aspen Glade.
