Description 

Tiny crimps and difficult feet make this route a really great onsight test piece at the grade. The crux is from bolt 2 to bolt 3. Find a rest and fight the pump to the anchors.

Location 

This route is located to the right of the main roof area. Starts on a small ledge just under the main cliff beneath a blocky tufa formation. Angles up and slightly to the right.

Protection 

3 bolts, 1 perma. Sport anchors.

There is a downward facing flake at the bottom of this route that, if pulled on, may break and cause the key pocket to the right of the tufa formation to become unusable. DON'T USE THE FLAKE.

Great beta per Jesse. This route has a bouldery start that stays on you until reaching a jug which offers a chance to recover. The climbing eases off a bit to the anchors from here on out. I'd say this route is bouldery, not as sustained compared to Learning to Crawl and has a similar rating as Astro Zombie. The movements and holds are very memorable, I'd rate this climb highly.
