Description 

Good, varied climbing if you don't mind a run-out start.

P1 5.8- PG Climb the ramp. After a couple more unprotected moves trending right, sling the constriction in the horizontal on your right and breathe a sigh of relief. Step left and continue up the face past a pin to lower-angle rock and belay below the huge left-facing corner or link P2. (80 ft.)

P2 5.5 PG Move up and left following the giant corner to the GT. Splashtic and Gorilla My Dreams cross the route from the left. (100 ft.)

P3 5.5 PG Same as P3 of Gorilla My Dreams (60 ft.)

Location 

About 25 feet left of the large, left-facing corner of Oscar and Charlie. Look for a narrow, 10 ft. high ramp that leads right.

Protection 

Standard rack.
