Tip toe out a ledge and up to a very hollow flake. Bear down on the razor edge of the flake and do some tension moves to hit a horizontal. Road runner mantel up to a stance. Easy run out ground leads to salvation.


This is one of several obscure/forgotten routes located on a buttress to the left of Rusty Redneck.


One lone, old rusty anchor bolt. To the right is a nice new anchor/rap station.

This is a fun TR after leading Animal Cracker (which has newer bolts) - throw a directional on the one old anchor bolt.

Climbed this on TR this weekend. Crux is fun but it's quite runout above that. No worthwhile gear after that first bolt and I didn't see the old anchor bolt mentioned in the description. Maybe a 70 foot runout to the new anchors up top.
