Thin climbing down low leads to a big ledge. From there, step up into a "kind-of" dihedral and move up to a large flake. A couple of cool moves including an undercling or two up high take you to the anchors. Fun 5.8. Probably a truer version of a 5.8 than most at the ranch.

Good solid 5.8. Some fun moves for sure.

I thought this route was significantly more difficult than it's neighbor First Time Up. Hardest 5.8 at ranch.

This route was a little intimidating for the grade. It had some interesting moves down low then it turned into a pump fest while laybacking on stacks of flakes just below the anchors. A great climb with some diversity.
